Baked Tilapia Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4

Ingredients:

  • 4 tilapia fillets (about 6 ounces each)
  • 3/4 cup olive oil, preferably extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon grounded black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 4 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 large onion
  • 4 tablespoons butter
How to cook Baked Tilapia:
  • Start by preheating the oven to 350°F/175°C.
  • Prepare a medium sized baking dish by coating its bottom with roughly 1/4 cup of the olive oil.
  • Pour the rest of the olive oil, 1/2 cup, into a small bowl and mix it with salt, pepper, oregano, garlic and tomato paste.
  • Place the tilapia fillets in the baking dish. The skin side should be up.
  • Use a spatula to gently spread the mix from the bowl over the fillets. A large part of the paste should be used to cover the centers of the fillets.
  • Slice one green bell pepper into thin slices.
  • Slice one large onion into slices.
  • Place the green bell pepper and the onion around the tilapia fillets.
  • Place the baking dish in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. The baked tilapia is finished when you can easily flake it using a fork.
  • Remove the baked tilapia from the oven and place 1 tablespoon of butter on top of each fillet.
  • Set the oven to broil and broil the baked tilapia during 5-7 minutes. The butter should be fully melted and just turning slightly brown when you remove the dish from the oven.
