I invented this fast weeknight dish using frozen tilapia fillets. My entire family loved it! I often serve it with crusty rolls, salad and a rice dish. It always gets raves! —Christine Bissonette, Scotia, New York

"Not only was this recipe delicious, but it was very colorful and easy as well. I would consider changing out the green bell pepper for an orange one if you perfere it not to have that bite to it that a green pepper can give. I would definately make this again! For a varition, I might even try it with a mild salsa on top!"

"Tilapia is one of the very few fish we eat and it's so good to cook. This dish looks excellent and definitely one we'll try when we have the time to cook it this way."

"I've made a very similar recipe but I add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts for extra crunch and omega-3's"
