Take a delicious fish and add an international twist!
Tilapia is one of America’s favorite fish varieties, perhaps because of its extra-mild flavor and easy preparation. This recipe for Greek-Style Tilapia gives you one more way to serve this versatile, healthy fish!
Prep time: 6 minutes; Cook time: 18 minutes
1 to 2 lemons
1 1/2 lbs tilapia fillets (about 4)
1 Tbs chopped oregano leaves
Salt and pepper to taste
2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
8 oz orzo (or any other type) pasta
Preheat oven to 400° F.
Juice the lemons to get 1/4 cup juice, and grate 1/2 tsp of the peel.
Arrange the fish fillets in a 12 x 9-inch baking dish. Sprinkle the fish with lemon juice and peel, chopped oregano, salt and pepper. Add the tomatoes to the baking dish around the tilapia. Cover with foil and bake 16 to 18 minutes, or until fish is done.
While fish cooks, cook the pasta in water. Serve the pasta and fish with the juices from the baking dish.
