Tilapia with Tomato, Scallions and Garlic – just before cooking


A light and delicious tilapia dish that takes just minutes to prepare!


  • 2 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 Tilapia fillets (6 oz each)
  • 4 Scallions, chopped
  • 3 Cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • Juice from 1 small lime
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Combine the tomato, scallions, garlic, lime, salt and pepper in a small bowl.
  • Lay two 18-inch lengths of aluminum foil (one for each fillet) flat on a work surface.
  • Place a tilapia fillet on foil and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil; repeat for second fillet.
  • Top each fillet with half the tomato mixture.
  • Fold the foil up and over the food, crimping the edges closed and creasing the sides to form a tent.
  • Bake in a 425°F oven for approximately 15 minutes or until done.
  • Drizzle sauce in foil packets over the veggies on top of the fish just before serving.


Yield: 2 servings. This is also very good using shallots instead of scallions. For another tasty variant, add a little fresh thyme to the tomato mixture.
