All you need are 5 ingredients and 20 minutes for a delicious hassle-free fish dinner with a little Mexican flair.  Queso fresco and cilantro are perfect compliments to our flavorful Salsa Verde.  If tilapia is hard to find, any mild white fish will work in this dish. 


  • 6 uncooked tilapia fillets (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 1 jar (16 ounces) Pace® Salsa Verde
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 6 tablespoons crumbled queso fresco or feta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro (optional)


  • Tips

    • Serving Suggestion:  Serve the tilapia and sauce over hot cooked rice.
  • Step 1

    Set the oven to 400°F.  While the oven is heating, spray a 13x9 x2-inch baking dish with vegetable cooking spray.

  • Step 2

    Place the fish into the baking dish.  Season the fish as desired.  Spoon 1/4 cup salsa verde onto each fish fillet. Sprinkle with the red pepper and cheese.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 10 minutes or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Sprinkle with the cilantro, if desired.
