Simple skillet whitefish

Here's a great way to add excellent flavor to tilapia!  This recipe works well with any whitefish fillets, though.

Simple Skillet Whitefish

Olive oil
2 lb whitefish fillets
Large onion, chopped fine
2 cloves of garlic, minced
3 to 4 medium sized tomatoes, chopped
Water as needed
2 - 3 T fresh oregano
Salt and pepper

In a cast iron skillet, heat some oil and fry the fish on both sides until cooked almost completely through.  Remove to a plate.

Add more oil to the skillet and cook the onions and garlic until soft.  Add the tomatoes and cook down into a chunky sauce, adding water as needed.  Keep at a simmer and cook for about 5 to 10 minutes.  Return the fish to the skillet and heat through, adding the oregano, salt, and pepper.  I like to stir and break up the fish, but you can also leave it in larger pieces.  Serve with bread.
