Tilapia with Tomato, Garlic & Capers (and a couple other things)

In yesterday's post, I talked about tilapia. One of my readers, Anya, was kind enough to ask if I would post the recipe for tilapia with tomato, garlic and capers. So, here it is! I got this recipe from my local newspaper. The first time I made it I was home alone. It was so good I ate the whole recipe by myself (first night for dinner, and next day for lunch... not all at once!).
If I had known I was going to post it, I would have taken pictures, but I added pictures of some of the ingredients just to brighten it up.

4 tilapia filets
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 cup finely diced onion
1 cup chopped tomato
2 cloves garlic
2 T. capers
3/4 cup dry white wine
2 T. lemon juice
4 T. butter
3 tsp. olive oil

Combine flour, salt & pepper and dredge filets in the mixture.
Heat 2 T. of the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook filets for three to four minutes on each side.
Remove filets to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
Add 1 T. oil to pan. Saute the onion until translucent.
Add tomato, garlic and capers and stir.
Add wine and lemon juice and boil until reduced by half.
Add butter to mixture.
Pour over fish and serve.

Avec wine of course ... Merci for the recipe and thank you for your kind and understanding comment. Honestly since I found that site Sunday and read those stories I have felt like I won a lottery. This giant feeling of relief. It means so much to know that I have friends who understand that feeling. xo S, Miss D , Ness, Ver & the L'il Man

I drove into the big town for a hair cut and dental appointment. Bought tilapia. Incrredible chat with the fish monger. Visited a paraplegic friend in long term care.

I have printed the recipe.

I continue to be grateful that I can shop, and cook in my own home, in my own kitchen.

Thank you for the suggestion & recipe.

Thinking of gratitude leads me here.

Thank you for the recipe, Judy. It looks delicious. I'll buy some fish while I'm here at my sister's and cook that when I get home. I love capers.

Hope you have a wonderful holiday.
