Tilapia Puttanesca Recipe (Fish For Friday Recipe of the Week)

See More Seafood and Shellfish Recipes Organized by Type of FishHere’s a deliciously improvisational recipe for Italian Tilapia Puttanesca from the folks at Proud Italian Cook.

A good Puttanesca sauce is spicy, zesty, and addictive. Whether you add it to meat, poultry, or seafood dishes, or just put it on the pasta of your choice, you’ll find that your fork will take on a life of its own as you find yourself getting up to grab seconds (or guilty thirds).

In classical Italian cooking, traditional Italian cooks often take a Jazz-like approach to cooking; feeling their way through as they create and cook their recipes; adding a little pepper here and a lot of fresh garlic there.

Ingredient amounts are often decided by taste, the freshness of the particular ingredients they choose to highlight, and the overall mood of the meal itself.
