Instructions Checklist
  • Dry tilapia fillets and cut each in half. Season each fillet with Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper. Dredge in flour to coat, shaking off excess.

  • Melt butter and oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Pan-fry fish quickly, working in batches if needed, until edges appear white, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip and continue to cook until easily flaked with a fork, 3 to 4 minutes more. Remove to a plate and keep warm.

  • Heat the same pan over medium-high heat. Saute onion until soft, about 5 minutes. Pour white wine into the pan, reduce heat, and let simmer until reduced by about half, 5 to 7 minutes. Drizzle sauce over fish before serving and garnish with capers.

Excellent! I made it the same except for the capers, which I don't keep in my pantry. A delicious way to enjoy tilapia. Read More
