Realistic Cooking Ideas

for Busy People! And sharing our life adventures along the way!

Summer is a great time of year to start reducing calories and those heavy comfort meals that get us through a cold, harsh winter. This is one of my favorite recipes for baked Tilapia as it includes healthy ingredients and is just delicious! The ingredients are approximate and lean heavily on a lot of fresh chopped vine-ripe tomatoes per serving. Hopefully you will have a few tomatoes and basil out of your garden for this dish. Plus it is quick to put together and does not take long to bake in the oven. One serving option is to leave the fish in its baking dish.

For this dish I serve Basmati Vegetable Rice with Raw Pumpkin Seeds. The rice takes about an hour to make and warms over nicely. It is a healthy way to enjoy a side dish with this lean dinner.


The cooking time will depend upon if the fish is frozen, which will add more time to baking. Do not overbake as it needs to be flaky!

The balsamic adds a really nice flavor to this dish! My preference is to plate the fish to really get all that wonderful balsamic flavor!!

More tomatoes the better! A nice bite contains fish, balsamic, tomatoes, Parmesan Cheese, and a bit of basil!

  3. Tilapiya is a common fish also here in India… 🙂 I’ll try this great recipe for sure… 🙂

    1. Bernice says:

      I hope you enjoy it! I use a small Tilapia so if your fish is larger you may need to adjust the ingredients.

      1. Yes, we get a larger variety here…. 🙂

    I have made tilapia similar to this dish. Very tasty. I will have to try it with the balsamic vinegar next time.

    1. Bernice says:

      The balsamic adds so much more flavor! And you don’t need a lot either – depending upon the size of your fish.

  5. My mouth waters at the thought of fresh tomatoes and basil. The fish won’t hurt either. Don’t buy Tilapia. Should try this. 🙂

    1. Bernice says:

      You could use any fish that you like. I adore fresh vegetables and herbs!! 🙂

      1. Mm. Me too. I have heard Tilapia is mild and I might try it, but my impression has been it is farmed fish. o_O

      2. Bernice says:

        It is a very mild fish. And you could substitute it with any fish you enjoy! 🙂

    1. Bernice says:

      Your welcome and I hope you enjoy it! The balsamic really adds a lot to this dish!

    1. Bernice says:

      It is really good! The balsamic adds a lot to this dish especially since the fish is mild.

  8. Truly Agree dear Bernice
