Tilapia Piccata

tilapia with capers

Let me start by saying...I <3 capers. As in, I think I have an obsession with them. I try to sneak those babies into everything. This dish welcomes them, which is probably why it's one of my go-to dinners (or lunch in this case)!


2 tilapia fillets

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/3 cup white wine

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup chicken broth

1 tablespoon capers (or more if you're me)

2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley (optional)


Season tilapia with salt and pepper. Place flour in a shallow dish, and dredge tilapia in flour. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add tilapia, and cook for 1 minute on each side. Add white wine, lemon juice, chicken broth, capers, and garlic to pan. Cook for 2 minutes per side or until flaky. Top with sauce; sprinkle with parsley.
