I try to eat fish twice a week because of the health benefits. This is one of my favorite ways to eat fish. This is a simple dish with only a few ingredients. I recommend always using high quality ingredients to achieve maximum results like extra virgin olive oil, fresh pepper, ripe tomatoes and a good dry wine. These subtle differences can make a dish go from good to great.

- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 4 (6 oz) tilapia filets
- 2 garlic cloves, crushed
- 2 shallots, minced
- 2 tomatoes, chopped
- 2 tbsp capers
- 1/4 cup white wine (I use Pinot Grigio)
- salt and fresh pepper
In a medium sauté pan, heat remaining olive oil. Add garlic and shallots and sauté on medium-low about 4-5 minutes. Add tomatoes and season with salt and pepper. Add wine and sauté until wine reduces, about 5 minutes. Add capers and sauté an additional minute.
Meanwhile, set broiler to low and place fish about 8 inches from the flame. Broil until fish is cooked through, about 7 minutes.
Place fish on a platter and top with tomato caper sauce.
Note: The olive oil adds to the flavor of this dish and is an essential healthy oil. If you want to lower the points, you can lightly spray olive oil with a Misto or use Pam. Points per serving would be lowered to 4 points per serving, 197 calories, 3.8 grams of fat.
