“I found this recipe on a cooking blog that I frequently read, and it's so good. This dish is so easy because everything is prepared in one skillet, on the stovetop. The fish comes out with tons of flavor, and all the flavors complement each other very well. Any mild, white fish can be subtituted for the tilapia, too. Sometimes, I drain the tomatoes and add 1/4 c. white wine to the sauce. My picture shows this with Kittencal's Low-Fat Oven-Baked Zucchini Sticks, and crusty bread might be good with this too.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the onions and cook until tender, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about a minute more.
  4. Add tomatoes, mushrooms, olives, oregano, and pepper. Bring sauce to boiling.
  5. Gently place the fish fillets in the pan and scoop some of the sauce over the fillets. Return to boiling.
  6. Reduce the heat and cover. Simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.
  7. With a wide spatula, lift fish from skillet to a serving dish. Spoon the sauce over fish, and serve.
