Tilapia Fillets with Homemade Tomato Sauce

Because the Tilapia Fillets just looked so good, Jon picked some up and came home to start cooking. And because we have more tomatoes from the garden than we know what to do with, he whipped up some tomato sauce to go with them.


2 Tilapia Fillets




Wash fish, pat dry. Sprinkle and press in salt and pepper. Toss in flour. Pan fry in a thin layer of Canola oil.

Tomato Sauce

2.5 pints of garden grown grape tomatoes

6 cloves of garlic

½ large Vandalia onion, cut in half




Fresh Basil

1/3 jalapeno with seeds, cut off tip, quartered

¼ cup pine nuts

Roast the tomatoes, onions and garlic in the broiler till slightly charred. Place all ingredients in blender, blend until smooth.

*Note, Jon would do without the pine nuts next time
