This dish was very tasty! The tomato sauce over the top of the tilapia was a very savory addition to the already flavorful Italian and pares an crust.

Delicious. New favorite for lent. Healthy, fresh, super quick and easy. The recipe on the back of the can omits the small can of tomato sauce that you need, but it is correct on the web site. I made it with fresh haddock and it was fabulous.
