Lime Tilapia

With fresh tilapia on sale, I needed a good quick recipe for it. We eat a lot of fish, so I wanted something new and light. I found this recipe on CDK.



1 1/3 pound tilapia fillets, about 1/2 inch thick
3 tablespoons all purpose flour
salt and pepper
1 clove garlic, minced or pressed
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 green onions, chopped

Rinse the fish and pat dry. Put the flour on a plate and season it with salt and pepper. Dredge the fillets in the flour, patting to remove excess. I didnt flour mine…I just sauteed it in all the juices. It helped cut down on the fat and calories!

In a small bowl, combine the garlic, wine, lime juice and butter, then set aside.

Heat the oil in a 10 to 12 inch frying pan over medium high heat. Add the fillets without overlapping. Cook until golden on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Turn the fillets over and cook until opaque through the thickest part, 1 to 2 minutes more.

Transfer the fish to a platter and keep warm; cover with foil or place in a 200 F oven.

Add the wine mixture to pan and boil, scraping up cooked bits, until reduced by half, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the onions and heat on low about 30 seconds. Pour the sauce over the fish and serve. Serve with a light steamed veggie and salad.
