Tilapia Piccata

Tilapia Piccata

My lighter version but still with all the flavor!


  • 2 Tilapia fillets (or other white fish)
  • 1/2 lemon, juice
  • 1 tablespoon white wine, dry
  • 1/4 cup chicken stock (I used low sodium)
  • 2 ¬†tablespoons capers
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, fresh


  1. Heat oil in a pan on high heat.
  2. Season fillets with salt and pepper and place in pan. Fry fillets for about 3 minutes per side, until fillets are golden brown on both sides. Then set fillets aside.
  3. Add white wine and deglaze pan.
  4. Add chicken stock, lemon juice and capers and lower heat to simmer until liquid  reduces to half.
  5. Add butter and stir until melted and pour over the fish.
  6. Garnish with fresh parsley.
  7. Enjoy!!
