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.
