Tilapia with Tomatoes and Sour Cream

Tilapia is a pleasant mild white fish that wins most folks over easily.  It is the world’s number two farmed fish; trailing carp, which means it is reasonably priced and readily available. 

I love sauces, especially when they involve sour cream.  Add Rotel tomatoes and sour cream to the tilapia along with a good dose of garlic for a fish packed with lots of tasty flavors.  

This dish makes a re-visit here often.  I hope you like it also!

Tilapia with Tomatoes and Sour Cream


3 tilapia filets
Salt and pepper to taste
1 (10-ounce) can Rotel tomatoes
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons sour cream


Place tilapia in a baking dish coated with cooking spray.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Combine remaining ingredients in a bowl.
Pour over tilapia.
Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes until sauce is thick and creamy.
