Tilapia with Coconut Sauce

Monday, March 18, 2013

I love one pot meals because they're easy to make and takes little effort but yet full of flavor. This dish is exactly like that, simple ingredients with so much flavor. The key ingredient for this dish is definetly the coconut milk, adds a subtle but important taste to the overall dish. Happy cooking!

Recipe by Sweet Caroline
1 pound tilapia fillets, fresh or thawed
1 white onion, thinly sliced
1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
2 plum tomatoes, diced
1/2 cup tomato sauce or 2 tablespoons  tomato paste
1 cup water
1 can (13.5 oz) coconut milk
salt and pepper

In a big saucepan, heat oil on medium/high . Add the the onion and bell pepper, sauté for 1 minute. Add the tomatoes and sauté for another minute. Stir in tomato sauce and water, bring to a boil. Stir the coconut milk and bring to a boil again. Season with salt and pepper. Add the tilapia fillets, gently pushing them into sauce. Simmer for about 5 minutes or until fish is cooked and opaque. Adjust the seasoning if needed. Serve warm with some white rice. Enjoy.
