To prepare this easy tilapia recipe, simply sear the fish in a skillet, then top with a citrusy white wine-shallot sauce. Sherry vinegar is mildly acidic. If you can't find it, substitute white wine vinegar.
4 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1/2 cup white wine
2 tablespoons finely chopped shallots
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
4 teaspoons extravirgin olive oil
2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
How to Make It
Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Sprinkle fish evenly with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add 2 fillets to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork or until desired degree of doneness. Remove from pan; keep warm. Repeat procedure with remaining fillets.
Add white wine to pan; cook 30 seconds or until liquid almost evaporates. Combine shallots and remaining ingredients, stirring well with a whisk; stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add shallot mixture to pan; sauté 1 minute or until thoroughly heated, stirring frequently. Place 1 fillet on each of 4 plates; top each serving with about 3 tablespoons sauce.
I have made this recipe a few times in the last couple of months. It is truly one of the best tilapia recipes I've made! Love making it with cous cous to soak up the yummy citrus sauce! http://determinedwwmomma.blogspot.com
Fast and fabulous. Like others I subbed onion for shallot and used apple cider vinegar because that's what I had. I served it with steamed broccoli, cauliflower and carrots and just poured the sauce over it all. Yummy!
Yum! I made this with several slight changes due to what was on hand. I didn't have lemons so I used a lime. No white wine vinegar, but I had citrus champagne vinegar. Also used onions instead of shallots. Served with quinoa and a green salad. No leftovers at my house!
My husband isn't fond of fish, but one bite of this dish and he went "WOW!" This is simple and light, easy to throw together without exotic ingredients or extensive prep time. This one will become a regular in our home.
AMAZING and easy meal! Usually it is just my husband and I, so I'll broil 2 tilapia fillets while I cook the sauce. I make the entire amount of sauce for 2 (I use a little less oil) and drizzle the remaining sauce over some jasmine rice. Easily one of my favorite recipes!
