Snapper Piccata

Oxmoor House
Prep time 5 mins
Cook time 9 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 1 fillet and about 1 1/2 tablespoons sauce)
The wine and lemon juice are used to deglaze the skillet, capturing the flavorful browned bits that remain after the fish is cooked. You can substitute fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth for the wine, if desired. Cook the pasta while you prepare the fish so that both dishes will be ready at the same time.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 (6-ounce) snapper fillets (about 3/4 inch thick)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

How to Make It

  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle fillets evenly with salt and pepper. Add fillets to pan, and cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until fillets flake easily when tested with a fork. Remove fillets from pan; keep warm.

  2. Add wine and juice to pan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 2 minutes or until slightly thick, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Stir in capers and parsley. Spoon sauce evenly over fillets.

  3. Serve with: Parsley-Buttered Pasta
