Roasted Tilapia with Potatoes, Tomatoes and Olives

I really love fish, yet I rarely cook it, so I am dedicating the next few posts to delicious and healthy seafood! This might be a good way to get back on the diet track after Thanksgiving!

Roasted Tilapia with Potatoes, Tomatoes and Olives
This is from a Cooking for One cookbook, so the recipe is for one serving.

You will need some potatoes, cherry or grape tomatoes, olives, white fish of your choice, garlic, lemon, wine, and herbs of your choice.

potatoes and lemon
Preheat your oven or toaster oven to 425. Slice your potatoes and lemons.

garlic and tomato
Chop up your tomatoes and garlic.

yummy olives
Chop up your olives, be aware there may be pits in them!

potatoes and garlic in for 10 minutes
Mix the potatoes with olive oil, garlic, herbs, salt, and pepper. Pop these guys in the oven for about 10 minutes.

measure time
While the potatoes get tender in the oven, juice your lemon and measure your water and wine.

potatoes out, stir in the tomatoes and olives
When the potatoes are done, stir in the tomatoes and olives and then layer the lemons on top.

into the oven for 12-15 minutes
Place the fish on top of the lemons and pour the wine and water mixture over the whole thing. Season the fish with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Put this all back in the oven for 10-15 minutes depending on how thick your fish is and how well you like it cooked.
