Ingredients Convert to Imperial

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 medium zucchini, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 medium yellow squash, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp fresh ginger root, peeled and finely minced
  • 1 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce, or to taste
  • 1 Tbsp onion powder
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 dash each of salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 portions tilapia fish (about 6 oz each)
  • 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro leaves (for garnish)

Directions:

In a large skillet over medium heat, heat half a tablespoon of olive oil. Add the chopped vegetables, including the garlic and ginger. Sauté for 2 to 3 minutes or until crisp-tender. Season with soy sauce and remove from heat.

On a large dinner plate, mix together the onion powder, parsley, thyme, cayenne, salt, and pepper. Coat the fish, front and back, with the mixture. Heat the remaining olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Sauté the fish for 2 to 3 minutes per side or until cooked through.

Place the vegetables over high heat for just a minute to re-warm. Transfer them to a serving platter. Lay the fish on top of the vegetables and garnish with cilantro. Serve immediately.
