- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 bell pepper, chopped
- Juice of 1 lemon

Gather the ingredients.
Combine all ingredients except for the tilapia. Mix well until the salt is dissolved.
Place tilapia in a glass dish and cover with marinade. Turn to coat and set aside for 20 minutes.
Pour marinade into a saucepan and bring to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer on low for about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from heat and let sauce cool.

Serve by pouring a small amount of the sauce over the tilapia fillets.
