Things have been really busy around here. Lots of work and life responsibilities. I am sorry I haven’t been very prompt responding to comments. Regular posts have been difficult to complete and sadly there has been more than one fast food drive through meal. Equally as disturbing is the fact that this trend will probably continue for the next week or so. I long for a long weekend at home. Until then I will continue preparing meals like this one.


Tilapia with Lemon Shallot Sauce

  • 4 tilapia fillets
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • 1/2 of a lemon, juiced
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Salt and pepper both sides of the tilapia fillets. Heat oil over medium heat in a heavy bottomed skillet (not non-stick). Fry fish until cooked through and flaky (about 2 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the filets). Remove fish and set aside.  In same pan, melt better and add shallots. Saute until they are tender. Add lemon juice and allow to simmer another 2 minutes. Taste the sauce and adjust flavors as needed. Spoon over the fish.
