The first time I had tilapia was at a holiday party at a local restaurant a little over a year ago. When eating out, I try to choose something that I don't normally eat at home, both to step out of my comfort zone a little bit and to get the opportunity to try something new. I ordered their tilapia with a white wine lemon butter sauce and I swear I did everything but lick the plate clean at the end of the meal. It was that good.
So good that later that night, when we were back home, I headed to the computer to find some tilapia recipes to try out. I found just what I was looking for from Cooking Light … it's crazy simple to make and just short of OMG good. Truly restaurant worthy, it's perfect for a quick weeknight meal or fancy enough for entertaining with friends. The only change I made to the recipe was to swap out the peppercorns for capers. I love the salty bits of juicy goodness that the capers deliver with the rest of the dish, and wouldn't make it any other way. Whether this is your first introduction to tilapia, or your 50th, you can't go wrong.
