Lemon-Lime Tilapia

Tilapia fillets can run small, so you may need 2 fillets per serving.

Coastal Living JANUARY 2007

  • Yield: Makes 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 (4- to 6-ounce) tilapia fillets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice

Preparation

Combine flour, salt, and pepper on a large plate. Dredge fillets in flour mixture, coating both sides.

Heat olive oil, lemon juice, and lime juice in a very large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook fillets 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until done. (If liquid reduces too much, add about 1/4 cup water.) Serve immediately.

Wine pairing: A Fumé Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, or crisp Chardonnay will complement any citrus-seafood dishes (perhaps served with a tossed green salad and crusty French bread) for a light, refreshing supper.
