This Mediterranean-style dish features oregano-seasoned tilapia served over a hearty, colorful medley of spinach, chickpeas, and onion quickly simmered in a rustic tomato sauce. We’re topping it all with a punchy duo of garlic and niçoise olives—cooked briefly in the pan to enhance their rich, aromatic flavors.

Prepare the ingredients
1 Prepare the ingredients

2 Make the olive topping

In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped olives and half the chopped garlic; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.

Cook the fish
3 Cook the fish

Pat the fish dry with paper towels. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and the oregano. In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned fish and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until lightly browned and cooked through.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm. 

*An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.

Add the remaining chopped garlic and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until softened. Add the drained chickpeas and crushed tomatoes (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper.
