Tilapia served with peppers, onions and olives


2 Tbsp Olive oil
4 6-ounce Tilapia fillets
sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
2 red bell peppers, sliced thin
1 onion, sliced thin
1/2 cup pitted green olives
1/2 cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice


1. Heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in a large non stick skillet over medium high heat.

2.  Season the fish with salt and pepper on each side. Cook until opaque (about 4 minutes per side)

3. Meanwhile, in a second skillet, heat the remaining oil over medium high heat.  Cook the onion and the peppers, stirring often, until tender.  About 8 minutes.

4.  Stir the olives, parsley, lime juice, salt and pepper to taste into the cooked onions and red peppers. Serve the vegetables over top the cooked Tilapia.


  1. I do something similar to this with all the above, plus a little tomato and smoked paprika. If you wanna Spanish it up a bit more. :-)

  2. sounds even better! don't tell anyone, but this meal is high protein, low fat and low calorie. ssshhhhhh

  3. Tonight's the night. Keep your fingers crossed.
