As Christians observe Lent, fish becomes a special in many restaurants. At Nabeel's® we serve fish (tilapia) every day. This recipe for cooking fish is from my hometown Patras in Southern Greece in the Peloponnese region.

Preparation time: 20 min
Cooking time: 15 min

Difficulty: Easy - for beginners
Serves: 4


4 fresh Tilapia
½ red onion, diced
2 tomatoes, chopped
3 tsp Paprika
¼ bottle of Nabeel's® GLORIAâ„¢ Classic Greek Dressing**
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 pinches oregano
¼ cup Capers Capotes*
¼ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper to taste


1.Place in a bowl onions, tomatoes, garlic and oregano. Mix well.

2.Oil a baking pan and place fish in the pan without touching each other. Sprinkle paprika on top of tilapia. Pour all of the ingredients from the bowl over the Tilapia.

3.Pour in the olive oil, salt and pepper to taste and bake for 15-20 minute (until the fish is soft).

4.Serve with a Greek Peasant Salad, a glass of white wine (preferably SKOURAS* white), and a crusty Italian/French bread (to soak up the juices) and you will have a great delicious and inexpensive lunch or dinner.

And maybe who knows...if you close your eyes you might think that you are in Patras, my hometown in Greece. ENJOY!
