Tilapia Piccata

This meal was easy to make and delicious as well. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

What You Need for Tilapia Piccata:
2-3 tilapia fillets
sea salt and black pepper
splash of olive oil
about a tablespoon butter
splash of white wine
1/4 cup chicken stock
lemon (use half for juice and cut the other half into slices)
2 tablespoons capers
about a tablespoon butter

Heat olive oil and butter in your pan over medium heat, meanwhile season your fish with the salt and pepper. Add your fish to the pan and fry until they are a nice golden brown on each side, remove from heat. Add a splash of wine to deglaze your pan and pour a glass for yourself :)
Add the chicken stock, lemon juice, and capers to the pan, let simmer for a minute or two until liquid reduces by half. Add the butter to thicken up the sauce. Pour sauce over fish and garnish with lemon slices.

I prefer my fish served over rice and then topped off with the sauce but you can omit the rice if you would like.
