Tilapia is such a light, flavorless fish…but the good thing about tilapia is that, it taste exactly how you season it so naturally if you season it well, it will taste delicious.
I had a bunch of frozen Tilapia in my freezer and wanted to do a little more than the bake, basic pan-fry or sear…so I thought adding a sauce! Honestly, I had bottles of chardonnay in my fridge, lots of butter, lemon and garlic……4 ingredients that I always seem to have on hand lol
Prep: 5 minutes. Cook: 20 minutes. Total: 25 mins
The process was easy:
- 4-6 pieces of tilapia
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 1 good bottle of chardonnay ( dont cook with it if you can’t drink it!) You will only need about a tablespoon of wine.
- 2 tablespoons of butter or margarine ( I used margarine).
- chopped parsley
- cajun seasoning
- 1 whole lemon
- 1 tablespoon of corn starch
In a skillet, I sauteed garlic in extra virgin olive oil. Once your garlic is brown, CAUTIOUSLY add your wine and it will bubble and smoke a bit, control the fire. Add a little water and your butter shortly after. About 1/2 cup of water. This is what the process will look like
