Skillet Cajun Tilapia
This was so easy to put together and the sauce was great - my husband said he would put it on just about anything! I think it would be fantastic with chicken or even shrimp, but for sure we'll be having this again!
Note: The original recipe used flounder, but I subbed tilapia since I already had it. We enjoyed over a garlic brown rice pilaf - Worked great!
Serves 4...and only 205 calories per serving!
Adapted from Skinnytaste
1 tsp. olive oil
4 (6 oz) pieces tilapia fillets (or any white fish such as flounder)
3/4 cup onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup diced green bell pepper
2 1/2 cups tomatoes, chopped
1 Tbsp. Cajun spice seasoning
1. In a deep skillet, cook onion and garlic in olive oil on medium heat for a few minutes until soft. Add tomatoes, peppers and spices, stir and cook until tomatoes are soft, about 2-3 minutes.
2. Lay fish fillets in the sauce, cover and cook on medium-low until fish flakes easily, approx 12-15. To serve, place fish on plate and spoon sauce on top. Serve immediately.
