Tilapia with Tomatoes, Capers & Olives

What a great long weekend! I can’t say it was relaxing, but it was fun! I managed to pack a whole lot of activity into 3 days including, a BBQ with friends, drinks, fireworks, cleaning my house, grocery shopping, a day at the beach, and a nice BBQ’d dinner for two…{no in-depth details on that one just yet…}

After a weekend filled with a lot of activity, I was craving something light for dinner tonight…

I really like this meal because it comes together quickly, and the flavours are incredible! I prefer to use tilapia in this recipe because it’s very light tasting, but you could use haddock or seabass… or any other fish, really….
