When I served this sauce to my husband, he thought it was an extra tasty marinara. And while I like marinara, the carbs in tomatoes really do start to add up, making this red pepper sauce a better option!
An added advantage is that the sauce is super easy AND can be prepared in advance! Add some roasted red peppers (ones from a jar work just fine, but of course you could always roast your own), garlic paste, dried oregano, tomato paste, red wine vinegar and salt and pepper to a small blender (I use an attachment on my stick blender). Blitz until a sauce has formed. Taste for seasoning and adjust as necessary.
Place the tilapia fillets on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or silicone mat (I use this quarter size one). Season with salt and pepper and roast in a preheated oven for 10-12 minutes until the fish is cooked through.
Meanwhile, transfer the sauce to a small saucepan and heat through.
Serve the fish on a bed of salad (or, as shown here – some delicious spinach Miracle Noodles – only 2g net carbs for the whole 3oz bag!) and pour the sauce over the top.
