About this recipe: This tilapia recipe is delicious and ready in just 30 minutes. The fresh flavours of tomatoes, white wine and capers complete the dish. If asparagus isn't in season, you could use another green veg, like broccoli or even spinach.
Easy to make! I made a few changes- a little less oil, fewer capers (we are not big fans of capers- they are too tart for our tastes) and I used a can of peeled tomatoes, chopped, and included the juice as well. Enjoy! - 25 Aug 2012
I would give this dish 4 stars as written. The changes I made to make it a 5 star recipe for us are as follows: First I soaked my Tilapia in milk for about 2 hours. I then coated the Tilapia with a highly seasoned flour mixture(seasoned pepper, granulated garlic, onion powder, paprika, powdered basil, celery salt, cayenne, ginger, thyme and lemon peel. I also added a hefty sprinkling of Kraft Parmesan Cheese. I sauteed the fish with a bit of minced garlic and extra EVOO, removed to the serving platter, and did not return to the skillet at all. I added the wine ( a Pinot Grigio, capers, lemon, tomato and a few sliced mushrooms. After whisking in the butter, I decided I needed more of a sauce... so I mixed up about 1/4cup of cream with 1 Tbsp. flour, blended it into the skillet and WOW!!! A bit of extra lemon and we had an amazing dinner the other night, one which I am planning on adding to the family cookbook. THANKS!!!!! - 02 Aug 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Wow, we loved this! My boyfriend made this last night and it was delicious. He used canned, diced tomatoes instead and didn't serve it with asparagas. Watch salting the fish, as the capers add a ton of sodium. We'll be making this again, THANKS!! UPDATE: Made this again, submitted pic, and used asparagas this time and it was even better! We used frozen tilapia, which I don't recommend b/c it's fishier than fresh, but it was still good. The filets were smaller and fell apart a little, o'well still yummy! - 16 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
