I know I have said it before, but I love meals that come together quickly and without fuss. I also love it when that all happens on Monday.
Tilapia with Lemon-Parsley Vinaigrette
4 (6oz) tilapia fillets
flour, salt, pepper
zest and juice of two lemons
1/2 cup parsley, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup olive oil
In a shallow dish, mix about 1 cup of flour, a pinch of salt and a couple cranks of pepper.
Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add a little olive oil and about a teaspoon of butter.
Once hot, dredge the tilapia in the flour mixture and place in the pan. Cook for about 3 minutes a side, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
Meanwhile, whisk together the remaining 3 ingredients in a small bowl. As you continue to whisk, slowly add the olive oil. You can also combine these in a blender or small food processor if you don't want to have to cut everything up so small....the machine will do it for you.
I like the bite that the lemon juice offers, but you can always add more olive oil to taste.
Serve the fish topped with a little sauce! I like serving roasted potatoes and broccoli with the fish because they too taste good with the vinaigrette. Enjoy!
One note: yes there is a bit of garlic on top of my fish. Even when I have the fastest recipe working my sous chef can still sneak in some chopped garlic of her own!
