Tilapia Veracruz

Directions

  1. Thaw fish, if frozen. Rinse fish; pat dry with paper towels. Set aside.
  2. In a 12-inch skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, jalapeno pepper (if desired), and garlic; cook for 2 to 3 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in tomatoes, mushrooms, olives, oregano, salt, and black pepper. Bring to boiling.
  3. Carefully add fish to skillet, spooning tomato mixture over fish. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 8 to 10 minutes or until fish begins to flake when tested with a fork. If desired, break fish into chunks. Serve with rice and/or bread.

*Tip

Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.

Tilapia is a "bottom feeder". Why not use flounder? I have not tried this recipe, but we don't eat tilapia.

No one should be eating Tilapia. It's nearly all farm-raised and is not good for human consumption! Please stop pushing it at people.

Tilapia is, once you know about it, a terrible fish to choose for any recipe. They are raised in tanks with Bass, for the express purpose of eating the "poop" from the Bass. This fish is NOT something that I choose to use, and I am shocked that you were feature it in so many recipes!

Tilapia is not a very flavorful fish so the flavor comes from what you prepare it with. This recipe sounds delicious but it lacks a flavorful punch. I put extra garlic, salt and pepper, it's just too mild for my taste. I don't think another jalapeno is the answer although it certainly wouldn't hurt. Maybe some of the olive juice? I likely won't make it again because I can't put my finger on what would make it more enjoyable.
