While I was out…

Just because I had book club did not mean that my husband would starve.  I fixed my quick tilapia and oven roasted asparagus for him while I was whipping up my appetizers.  This is one of those great quick weeknight dinners and tilapia is an inexpensive fish!

Tilapia with butter caper sauce

  • 1 tilapia fillet per person
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 2 TB butter
  • 1 tsp capers

Combine flour and paprika.  Dredge tilapia in flour mixture.  In a heavy pan melt olive oil with 1 tsp butter.  Cook fish about 4 minutes a side.  Meanwhile, melt remaining butter with capers.  When fish is done, pour melted butter caper mixture over fish.

I served it with asparagus that I tossed with olive oil and roasted at 400 for about 6 – 7 minutes.  I added a little bit of Parmesan cheese.

I love to cook and love to eat. I work full time and have a family so managing good meals during the week requires organization. I'm hoping to share my weekly menu plans and recipes to make things a little easier for those who want to follow along.
