“My sister made this for our family this past Christmas and it is very good. The best part is that it's quick and simple to make. It's also healthy.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 -4 large tilapia fillets
  • 2 lemons, wedged (more or less to taste)
  • 1 large tomatoes, diced (my sister uses cherry tomatoes)
  • 12 green pepper, diced
  • 12 white onion, diced
  • olive oil


  1. Combine diced tomato, green pepper and onion in a bowl and set aside.
  2. In a non-stick pan, add olive oil and heat over med-low heat (lightly coat whole bottem of pan with oil, but not too much or you start frying)
  3. Add tilapia fillets to pan and squeeze lemons all over them; add lemons to the pan.
  4. Cover the pan and let fillets simmer. Adjust heat as necessary. I have had fillets take only 10 minutes to cook and others have taken 20 minutes. Check on the fillets with a fork. The fish should flake and fall apart when done.
  5. About 5 minutes before fillets are done, spoon diced veggies onto fillets.
  6. Cover and cook until done.
  7. I always make extra diced veggies to add to my cook fillets later.
