Tilapia Fish with Peas and Tomato

tilapia fish

Tilapia is freshwater fish, it’s not easy to find fresh fish in Hannover (or maybe I should look for fresh fishes counter somewhere), most of them are sold frozen. So I used thawed tilapia fish for our dinner. The peas that I’ve used also thawed peas. First I fried  the fish and combine with peas, tomato and soy sauce. This tilapia fish with peas and tomato perfect to serve with warm rice.
