Tilapia was in the refrigerator; tomatoes were taking up counter space ~ ~ ~ this is what I concocted:
I don’t know about where you are, but here; this summer, we have had the reddest tomatoes I’ve ever seen. They are a good source of Vitamin E, potassium and other minerals. And, fish is supposedly the ultimate brain-food, being high in Omega-3 and vitamins. Combined, they make a healthy, nutritious dish.
I rounded out the tomatoes and tilapia with braised green beans and brown rice. Take the hassle out of your dinner by making this quick meal!
Tomato and Herb-topped Tilapia
4 tilapia fillets
Salt and seasoned pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon fresh basil leaves, minced
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme
3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tomatoes, sliced
nonstick cooking spray
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Spray a baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Lay tilapia in baking dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
In a small bowl, combine basil, onion powder, thyme, and garlic.
Sprinkle over fish.
Top with tomato slices.
Drizzle olive oil over all.
Bake, about 20 minutes, until fish flakes easily with fork.
I’m talking about good!
