Umami oh my! Olives, capers, miso, and tomatoes form a rockstar quartet, infusing this dish with umami - that pleasantly savory flavor we all know and love. In this dish, we prepare tilapia fillets in a simple fashion to be the vehicle for a savoury puttanesca sauce. An arugula salad dressed with lemon and olive oil is a stellar accompaniment to a dish bursting at the seams with flavor.
