Tilapia with Tomato Cream Sauce

Here is another great recipe I received from one of my iVillage daily emails. The recipe is from Eating Well magazine and actually calls for cod, but tilapia is nice swap out. What I really like about this dish is that it's healthy and has only 227 calories. This would be a great meal to serve for a small dinner party. Serve this over farro, rice or barley and make a simple mixed green salad to accompany it.

1 lb tilapia or cod fillets, cut into four pieces
3 tsps chopped fresh thyme, divided
1/2 tsp salt, divided
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 shallot, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3/4 cup white wine
1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1/4 cup cream or half-and-half
1/2 tsp cornstarch

Season fish with 1 teaspoon thyme, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shallot, garlic and 1 teaspoon thyme; cook, stirring, until beginning to soften, about 1 minute. Add wine, tomatoes and the fish to the pan; bring to a simmer. Cover and cook until the fish is cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer the fish to a large plate; keep warm.

Whisk cream and cornstarch in a small bowl. Add to the pan, along with the remaining 1 teaspoon thyme and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Divide the fish and sauce among 4 shallow bowls.

(This obviously isn't my picture; it is from the magazine, but mine turned out just like this.)
