40 Minute Family Meal – Tilapia with Green Beans and Herby Tomatoes

Like most of the Christmas celebrating world our family is craving fairly simple fayre after a week of measured gluttony.

This is where this super-quick and easy fish bake comes into play.

You’ll need:

Three or four tilapia fillets
garlic – sliced
fresh cherry tomatoes
enough green beans to feed four
dried thyme
sweet basil
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat the oven at around 375 degree Fahrenheit (about 180 centigrade). In a roasting pan, add the beans (topped and tailed), garlic, tomatoes and coat liberally with olive oil. Sprinkle the herbs on top.

Bake for 10 minutes, remove from oven and move the beans around to make sure they are cooking evenly (you’ll want them slightly carmelized by the end of the cooking). Add the tilapia fillets on top of the vegetables and drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper.

Return pan to oven and continue to bake for 10 minutes.

Serve with rice or potatoes and enjoy a light alternative to the hard slog of holiday eating.

    Thank you for this recipe! My husband looked at me and said, “Oh no, are you bored? You’re trying a new recipe…” but after tasting, it went into the Keep rather than the Toss pile. It’s gratifying (though not surprising) that my 5yo liked it as well.
