This was absolutely amazing!! I used a shortcut and made it with medium heat salsa as opposed to the individual veggie ingredients (onion, diced tomato w/green chilies and red pepper) and it turned out wonderful! SO moist and tender, incredible flavor. Easily one of THE BEST fish dishes I've ever had, especially for tilapia! Thank you so much for the recipe!

Thank you for sharing this recipe! We really enjoyed it and I loved how fast, easy, and flavorful it was. We had it over sauteed veggies and ate it up.

Absolutely loved this! Easy recipe and loaded with flavor! I served with a side of couscous. I actually replaced the roasted red peppers with diced sweet yellow pepper...added when I was cooking the onion.

Good flavor. I think the seasoned salt was the key here.

This was delicious! We had it with angel hair pasta and the whole dish came together in no time at all, even though I had to roast the red pepper myself because I didn't have any jarred ones on hand. We will definitely be making this again!
