In pursuing a healthy and flavorful dish, our Tilapia with Tomato Chutney stands out for its thoughtful selection of ingredients.

Use diced tomatoes, to provide a juicy and vibrant base for the chutney, a sauce originating from India. Chutney is made through the process of slow-cooking vegetables with herbs and seasonings. Tomatoes are rich in vitamins and antioxidants and add a burst of flavor to the dish. Complementing the tomatoes is extra virgin olive oil, a heart-healthy fat that adds a luscious texture to the recipe while keeping calories low.

A touch of lemon juice brightens the chutney, adding a zesty and refreshing kick, while raisins and brown sugar introduce a natural sweetness that balances the acidity of the tomatoes. Ground cumin and crushed red pepper bring warm and smoky undertones, elevating the flavor profile with a hint of spice.

The lean and protein-rich choice of tilapia fillets becomes the canvas for this flavorful chutney. Seasoned with salt, black pepper and optional chili powder, the tilapia fillets are a healthy and versatile protein source.

Almonds provide a satisfying crunch, adding texture and nutty notes to the dish. Olives contribute a savory and salty element, enhancing the overall flavor complexity. Finally, a generous sprinkle of chopped parsley brings freshness and a touch of vibrant color to the finished dish.
