Cooking spray
4 (4-oz) tilapia fillets
1 med. onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 med. yellow or orange bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
1 cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk beverage
2 Tbsp. sweet curry powder
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F. Coat an 8- by 11-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  2. Lay the tilapia fillets side by side in the pan. Top the fillets with the sliced onion and bell pepper.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together all of the remaining ingredients and pour over the fish and vegetables. Bake for 30 minutes. The vegetables should be slightly crisp, and the fish should be cooked through but tender.
  4. Let the fish rest for 15 minutes before serving.

Tip: This fish pairs nicely with cooked brown rice.
