Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 27 minutes
Total Time: 37 minutes

The combination of roasted vegetables, lemon juice, and olive oil with the flaky, white, Tilapia fish creates a flavorful dish that is also healthy.


  • 5 pieces of Tilapia
  • 1/2 pound of cherry tomatoes cut in half
  • 3 T Olive Oil split
  • 1/2 C fresh basil torn to pieces
  • 1/2 C fresh parsley torn as well
  • 3/4 Large Black Olives cut in half
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 1/3 C Capers rinsed
  • Black Pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 400 degrees

In a 9x13 deep baking dish, put 1 T olive oil, cut tomatoes, cut olives, rinsed capers, basil (reserve some for topping after cooked), and parsley (reserve some).

Bake for 13-15 minutes

While the veggies are baking, prepare the dressing: lemon juice, remaining 2 T of olive oil, and pepper. Set aside.

Remove roasted veggies from oven and move them to the side of the pan so that the Tilapia can rest directly on the bottom of the baking dish.

Top the fish with the vegetables and pour the dresing on top.
Bake for an additional 10-12 minutes or until the fish is done.
Top with reserved basil and parsley.
