The potatoes were under cooked. I roasted them an additional 20 minutes and then added the Tilapia. The olives gave a nice flavor. The fish was bland. Like previous posters, I topped with salsa for some flavor. Basically, it's a good roasted potato recipe - sans fish.
I am trying the 4-week plan to streamline my evening dinner prep and this was my first recipe. Elegant, really pretty on the plate, very easy to prepare and the cooking times are perfect for potatoes (I quartered them) and tilapia. The only thing I might do differently next time is add the lemons in a little later (some burned) or maybe mix it up with capers vs olives. Yum!
love this, so simple. my hubby wont eat olives so we replace them with sun dried tomatoes and used lemon infused olive oil instead of regular. i also added just a few fresh mint leaves, yum!
Loved the potato dish! Fish is fish to me. We usually put some salsa on top while baking to give it some flavor. I will make the potatoes again.
I used locally caught Snapper instead of Tilapia since it is a more sustainable fish. The dish was nice but don't forget to remove the lemon seeds. They will add a bitter taste.
Loved this. I picked up the tilapia at Whole Foods, frozen fish section. The flavors were so subtle. Perfect dinner. Posted it on my blog - http://bit.ly/18p1ffv
Thanks for adding what you serve as a side dish!
used dried thyme instead of fresh, black olives instead of kalamata, added a clove of garlic, a splash of white wine, and some extra lemon juice on top of the tilapia. it was delightful! the smell of the thyme was divine (haha) the actual fish it self was a tad bland but mixed in with everything else it worked. thumbs up for ease!
This is a great recipe. I make about every other week. It can get expensive, but I try to keep costs down by buying my tilapia in bulk at Costco. I then freeze individual filets so that I can thaw only what I need. I also use dried thyme instead of fresh because I don't really notice the difference. Lastly, after adding the olives and tilapia, I clear some room on the baking sheet and add some asparagus. I drizzle it with olive oil and sprinkle some salt and pepper.
I love this. It's my standby meal when I cook for a new date. It's easy but seems fancy. The olives and wine make it very flavorful - - only downside is its expense. Also, tilapia isn't always available, but I've made it with other thin, white fish. I serve it with chard cooked with raisins.
Good recipe, fast and easy to prepare, loved by all in the family, but lacking in veggies. I steam broccoli, carrots or green beans to go with it.
very good recipe. I really liked it and I am not a big fish eater. I am trying to eat healthier and this was a good start!
God enough to add to our family favorites. I didnt have olives so I used capers. Loved the great lemony flavor of potatoes - living in So. California gives us an abundance of lemons in the late winter, early spring so this is a great way to use them up! Thanks!
pass on the olives, added some carrots. . . be sure to chop small enough to cook through. Loved the lemony potatoes and will definitely make again.
This recipe was just ok for me. I didn't really like the tast of the olives and the lemns together and my lemons got a bit too crispy. Probably won't make again.
These potatoes were delicious.
very good recipe. hubby asked to keep this one around. i quartered the potatoes and they weren't quite soft enough, so will let them cook longer next time. wouldn't change anything else. very attractive dish, too.
Very easy, with built in rest time so it's not open door, drop bag, chop, cook, eat--you have time to pour that much-needed glass of wine while the potatoes cook. I loved how the lemon rinds caramelized so they were completely edible by the end, nice touch. I added a chopped up serrano pepper which gave the dish more of a kick--don't worry the 40 min of baking mellows the spice a lot.
The potatoes came out nice and lemony and the cook time was right on for everything to come together. Will definitely be making this again. Delicious, simple and very mediterranian.
Made this one last night. I also used fingerling potatoes, and will use them again and again! They turned out great with the olives and lemon. I ended up using cod instead of halibut - it was a bit tough, but I think I over baked it. I'll definitely be trying this one again, and will be using the potato part as a side for other meals.
i made this last night, wow it was really easy and good.... I loved how this recipe made me look like a chef. I used fingerling potatoes that came in different colors at the grocery store, I think that added to the display. I loved how the lemon flavor was all over the potatoes but not too much on the fish. Great recipe, I will use it again.
Just made this. It's pretty good, I forgot to add the olives though. I will make it again. Next time, I will add the lemon when you add the fish and then finish baking because my lemons burned a bit.
Super easy and pretty tasty...the olives give good flavor...I would have never put all of this together on my own...I used mahi mahi because we already had it and it was also very good!
