One Skillet Tilapia Veracruz

One Skillet Tilapia Veracruz

Happy Wednesday! Hope your week has been pleasant and not too busy! Only two more days till the weekend! Yay! Do you have anything exciting planned for the weekend? Here in Alabama it’s been really warm this past couple weeks, temperatures have been in the high 90s and with high humidity. But I am not complaining, I can tolerate warm weather so much better than cold weather.

I have the perfect dinner recipe for you today which is a great quick and delicious meal for the middle of the week. It’s also Paleo. It takes less than 30 minutes to make and most ingredients I use are standard pantry staples. This One-Skillet Tilapia Veracruz is a healthy Mexican dish with wonderful flavors. Its taste is very similar to a lot of Mediterranean meals – pretty much the same ingredients – tomatoes, peppers, onion, garlic, olives, oregano and I also added some jalepeno peppers. It’s only 1 Tbsp jalepeno peppers, and they are cooked. I couldn’t even tell it was spicy, it just adds a nice flavor, so it’s kid approved.

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup tomato sauce
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • ½ cup olives, pitted and halfed
  • 1 Tbsp capers, rinsed and drained
  • 1 Tbsp jalepeno peppers, chopped
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • 1 Tbsp oregano
  • salt and ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4 tilapia filets
