Cajun Tilapia in Tomato Broth is a super quick and simple dinner for any night of the week! It’s a meal that is healthy for both you and your wallet!
I am back from Paris! Matt and I had a fantastic long weekend in one of the most beautiful cities I have ever been to. Have you been?
Each street was prettier than the last and every time you turned around you could see the Eiffel tower peaking out from behind the trees.
We had a whirl wind four days, visiting the love lock bridge (which we learned there are several of), Notre Dame, the Pantheon, Luxembourg gardens, Arc du Triomphe, the Louvre, Orsay museum, Eiffel Tower, Les Halles, Versailles and finally Normandy. Phew, I’m tired just thinking about all of that!
We had so much we wanted to see while we were there so our days usually started around 7am and ended at about 11pm. While we encountered some metro issues, and some sore feet, we made it through just fine!
Here are a few quick pictures from our trip.
After all the walking we did I’ve been craving light, healthy foods. And, since I only have one week left with Matt and have yet to cook him any fish, Cajun Tilapia with Tomato Broth was a must.
This is one of my easiest dinners yet. From start to finish it took me 35 minutes to put this entire meal together. What’s better is that the ingredients are few and the taste is amazing. The tomato broth creates a nice bath to cook the fish in. Then, once the fish is done, the spicy sauce is delicious on pasta or rice. You can’t let it go to waste after all!
Prep time 35 minutes, Serves 4
- 1 and 1/2 tbs olive oil
- 1 medium white onion, finely diced (yielding about 1 cup)

- 2 (14.5oz) cans diced tomatoes
- 1 tbs cajun seasoning
- 3/4 tsp red pepper flakes
- 6-8 tilapia filets
- Heat oil in a saute pan on medium heat. Add onion and pepper and cook until the vegetables are beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Add garlic to the pan and continue to cook until all vegetables have completely softened, about 2 more minutes.
- Add diced tomatoes, with juice, and spices to the pan. Simmer until sauce is heated throughout.
- Reduce heat to medium-low and add fish to the saucepan. Cover pan and let cook until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 10 minutes.
