I often eat at Macaroni Grill and order their Pollo Scaloppine. I thought I might try and adapt it at home using a mild fish. My husband was amazed at what I came up with. It's good with salad, brown rice and crusty bread.

  • 1 pound tilapia fillets

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • ½ cup sliced fresh button mushrooms

  • 1 lemon, juiced

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil with butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic. Place fish fillets in the skillet; sprinkle the fish with salt and pepper, and cook for 90 seconds. Turn the fish; season with salt and pepper, and cook an additional 90 seconds.
