Tilapia with Pan Roasted Tomato & Pesto Sauce

This recipe looks super fancy, but it's so easy to prepare!
Prep Time5 minutes
Cook Time10 minutes
Servings - 4 servings


  • 4 tilapia filets
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
  • 2-3 Tbsp store bought or homemade pesto sauce
  • Side dish - bread, brown rice, quinoa and veggies


  • Preheat oven to 375. Lightly grease a glass baking dish, large enough for all the filets. (I used a 9x13.)
  • Place the tilapia in a baking dish and season with salt and pepper. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes, or until the fish is white and flaky all the way through. Cooking time may vary, depending on thickness of the filet.
  • Once you put the fish in the oven, whip up the sauce. Add the olive oil to a medium sized skillet over medium-high heat. Add the halved tomatoes and pesto sauce. Let the tomatoes sweat out and start to roast in the pan. Once the skin starts to get a little "shrivel-y," remove from heat.
  • Plate each fish filet and pour the sauce over each serving.
  • Serve Tilapia with Pan Roasted Tomato and Pesto Sauce, along with a side of bread, rice or other veggies.
