After last week’s not as successful Fish Monday with the Tuna with a Blush Pasta, I decided to do a piccata – I know I can do this dish and I really like it. I’ve done chicken piccata but, in honor of Fish Monday and tilapia being on sale: Tilapia Piccata!
Three thick tilapia fillets – rinsed and patted dry… then dredged in cornstarch and browned in a little olive oil.
The browned fish was put into a warm oven and I worked on the “piccata” using white wine, fresh lemon juice, and capers. I reduced the sauce as the white rice finished cooking and wilted baby spinach with broiling water. All in all – it turned out quite nice. I would probably make more sauce, I really love the combination of flavors. We had two nice sized servings and enough for a delicious lunch the next day. YUM!
