Tilapia is very popular-delicious and affordable-but you can use any firm white fish, such as halibut, snapper or haddock, with this tasty topping. When cooking fish with a topping, make sure you include the topping when calculating the thickness for baking times.
1. Preheat the oven to 425ºF. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking oil.
2. Combine the tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, olives, goat cheese, garlic and basil in a bowl; mix well.
3. Place the tilapia on a rimmed baking sheet. Top with the tomato mixture. Bake for 10 minutes per inch of thickness of the fish and topping, or until the fish flakes easily when pierced with a fork. Garnish with the basil before serving.
