Baked Tilapia with Tomato and Basil (courtesy of Paula Deen)

So surprisingly this is a healthy recipe by Paula Deen, and there is no butter called for.  I know you might be thinking that this is because Paula Deen has turned over her diet because of her diabetes, but this recipe dates back to 2008.  I have to say this is one of the best fish dishes I have had in a LONG time. So thanks Paula!  Oh, and I did change it a little from her original recipe.

Nonstick cooking spray
4- tilapia fillets
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp minced fresh basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp onion powder
3 small cloves garlic minced
3 Tbsp olive oil
2-3 tomatoes sliced ( I used a variety of smaller tomatoes and larger tomatoes and just made sure they covered the fish)

Directions: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a shallow baking dish with nonstick spray.

Arrange the fish in the baking dish and sprinkle evenly with salt, pepper, basil, oregano, onion powder, garlic and 2 Tbsp olive oil.  Arrange the tomatoes evenly over the fish and drizzle with the remaining 1 Tbsp olive oil.  Bake until the fish flakes easily with a for, about 20-25 minutes.

I served mine with orzo pilaf and steamed green beans from my garden.
