What’s Cookin’ – Sautéed Tilapia with Caper Sauce

My family loves fish and seafood, and the girls really like Tilapia.  It’s a safe fish to serve because it is mild and easy to prepare.  Personally, I think Tilapia can use a little extra flavor so I prepare it with a little caper sauce.  If you don’t like capers, push ’em aside like my kids, but enjoy the sauce!

I have written this recipe for 4 servings, but it is easily adjusted.  The sauce is more than enough for 2 fillets and can be stretched if you need to make up to 6.  No need for any fancy math.

Ingredients – the only out of the ordinary ingredient would be the capers.

Capers are the small, round, dark green pickled unripened buds that are used primarily in Mediterranean cooking.  You see them most often in chicken and veal piccatas.

Tilapia dredged in flour with salt and pepper.

Sauté fillets in butter and / or oil for 3 minutes on each side.  Remove to a warm platter while preparing the sauce.

Add the wine / broth to the same pan and simmer for several minutes until sauce reduces by about 1/3 and thickens.  Turn down the heat and add the butter and capers.  Stir until the butter is completely melted.

Pour the sauce over the cooked fish.  Serve immediately.
