Sun Dried Tomato Tilapia

    A delicious combination of sun-dried tomatoes and fresh fish, great for a quick weeknight dinner. My husband is a recipe purist and always follows them to the letter, but after this he's learned to trust my inventions!

    Not bad for a topping, the fish does need more seasoning beforehand. As for the reviewer that noticed the "fishy" flavor, that's got to be not so fresh fish, tilapia should never have any fishy taste, not even if only steamed and unseasoned. And don't be a snob when it comes to frozen. Unless you buy it within 24 hours of catch, frozen is a better bet. Especially with tilapia, which is a farmed fish, and quick frozen immediatly after catch. Look for frozen fillets individually sealed for best taste, and thaw as instructed. Also, if you soak thawed fillets in milk for half an hour before cooking,(skim is fine) they will have a very fresh flavor.  -  12 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I had bought Tilapia for the first time and tried this recipe. I changed a couple of things and it was delicious. I left out the capers as my husband will not eat them. Then about 2 minutes before it was done I sprinkled the olives and tomatoes on top and added some crumbled Feta Cheese. I put it back in the oven to soften the cheese and basted it with the juice in the pan. Wow!  -  08 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Loving all of the recipe's ingredients, I made this with slight modifications. By poaching the tilapia in white wine/veggie stock/lemon juice with the chopped sundried tomatoes, olives, capers and garlic, the fish retains that wonderful Mediterranean flavor. After the fish is done, just reduce the sauce and spoon over top. I served this with a side of orzo. Very good -- thanks for the inspiration!  -  28 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
