    Without this great veggie combo this would just be steamed fish. With it, the dish really shines because the flavor of the veggies and spice IS the flavor as the fish really has none on it's own. Didn't have tilapia so used a thicker white fish and it was fully cooked at 25 mins. Yum.

    Wonderful dish, easy to put together, not too spicy but very flavorful.

    Great recipe! I was looking for a tilapia recipe that was not loaded with cheese and mayo or deep fried. This is it. I made it for company and it was a huge hit. Here are my modifications: I used more olives, dried parsley, used 2/3 of the spices and all of the vegetable with only 2 lbs of tilapia. I sauteed the vegetables and added the seasoning as the recipe says. Then I added 1 8 oz. can of tomato sauce because I wanted it a bit saucier. I then put all the veggies in a pan and placed the tilapia on top. I sprinkled it with lemon juice, salt, pepper and some parsley. I also added a bit of water but it really didn't need it. I covered it and baked it until the tilapia was ready. I served it over couscous.
