Citrus Tilapia and Tasty Tool Blogging Event!

With all the fresh lemons and oranges around here, I wanted a great recipe to use them. Adding them to fish is always a favorite here!

Also, I wanted to use my new Microplane Zester as part of the Tasty Tools Blogging Event, Using the new zester made zesting the fruit so much easier and I was able to get so much more off the fruit and waste less!


Using the new tool:


 Citrus Tilapia Recipe:

  1. Olive Oil
  2. 4 (6-ounce) Tilapia fillets I only used two fillets
  3. 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  4. 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
  5. 1/2 cup white wine
  6. 2 tablespoons finely chopped yellow onion
  7. 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice and zest the entire lemon
  8. 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice and zest the entire orange
  9.  Half a can of chicken broth


Heat oil in pan. Add Tilapia and cook for a few minutes each side. Once flaky, set aside and keep warm. In the warm pan, add the wine and get up all the cooked bits. Saute 2 minutes or until almost all the liquid is cooked off. Add onion, fruit zests and juice, broth, salt and pepper to pan. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 10 mins. Add the fillets back to pan to soak up all the juices. Cook 3-4 more minutes. Serve with 2 tbsp of the sauce over each fillet. You can keep the extra juice for a couple days. Reheat and serve over freshly cooked Tilapia!
