Tilapia Veracruz

If youíre a Midwesterner afraid to cook with fish, like I was, start with this recipe. Itís amazingly tasty and easy, despite a lot of ingredients. Capers are found near olives in the grocery store.

Fold 4 6 oz. tilapia fillets into circles and secure with a toothpick. Please in an 8x8 oiled dish.
In a large skillet, heat 1 T. olive oil.
Add 1/2 c. chopped onion, sautť until transparent.
Add 1 tsp. cumin
2-3 cloves garlic minced.
Add 3 Tbs. orange juice,
1 Tbs. lime juice,
2 Tbs. tomato paste
1 (10 oz.) can hot (mild if you prefer) diced tomatoes with green chilies,
4 Tbs. chopped fresh cilantro,
2 Tbs. capers,
4 Tbs. chopped pitted green olives.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes or until slightly thickened. Pour over fish. Bake 15-20 minutes or until fish flakes.
Serve with brown and wild rice to absorb the tomato sauce.
