Oven Roasted Tilapia With Tomatoes, Pesto and Lemon

READY IN: 22mins




  • Gently combine the tomatoes, garlic and olive oil with a little salt and pepper if desired and roast in a preheated 425 degree oven for about 10 minutes.
  • Juice the lemon and mix SOME of the juice with the pesto, adding more if desired or needed keeping the pesto a nice spreadable consistency and not runny. (Thanks breezer mom!) Spread mixture on top of the fish which has been seasoned with a little more salt and pepper if desired.
  • Cut the juiced lemon halves in half again so that you have two pieces of lemon to support each filet. Place a filet on top of two pieces of juiced lemon so that the fish is somewhat out of any liquid that accumulates, allowing it to roast rather than boil.
  • Return to oven for about 10 minutes or until the fish is flaky and no longer opaque.
  • Plate the fish along with the tomatoes and garlic and serve with more lemon wedges if desired.
