What's For Dinner? (Pancho Villa Baked Tilapia)

I've read time and again that we should be eating more fish. But fish is too hard to cook, right? Wrong! Here's an easy (yes, easy) recipe for tilapia. One thing I love about the recipe is the easy clean up (yay for tinfoil!) The best thing? It's yummy AND healthy.

1 tablespoon olive oil
4 (4 ounce) fillets tilapia
1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers
1 lime, juiced
4 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
1 lime, thinly sliced


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat one side of 4 (8x10 inch) pieces of aluminum foil with olive oil.
  2. Center each fillet on a foil square. Spoon a generous amount of diced tomatoes with juices over fish. Sprinkle with lime juice and cilantro. Position 2 slices of lime on top of each fillet. Close and seal foil packets, and place on a baking tray.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for approximately 20 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
