    This was a really good way to prepare tilapia, or probably any mild white fish. I did not have any black olives, otherwise I followed the recipe and it was fantasitc! Next tiime I will try it with the black olives. My DH said "put this recipe in your "repeat" file" so I will certainly be making it again! Thanks for sharing this great way to make tilapiia!

    Great recipe! We love tilapia and eat it at least once a week, and this preparation method has definitely made it into our rotation!

    This is one of my favorite fish dishes and I am not much of a fish fan. Very delicious easy to make, health, Scrumdilicious. What more could a gal want

    Easy and delicious. I substituted diced fresh plum tomatoes that i drained well and some olive tapanade because that's what I had on hand, but i doubt it changed the nature of the dish that much. Served with basmati rice and sweet peas for a fast and very enjoyable weekday dinner. Great recipe!
