Here’s another delicious idea to serve up for Fridays during lent! We LOVED this…I even almost convinced the little picky one to try it. This came together so easily (like, on the table in about 20 minutes…doesn’t get much easier than that!) and was a nice switch from our usual fish dishes.
Have a great weekend, all! We’re going to be partied out by the end of it – with lots of delicious food and drink in our bellies 🙂 Hope everyone else does the same.
Tilapia with Lime Sauce
adapted from Flavors of Brazil
4 tilapia filets
1 onion, chopped
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 cup light sour cream (can also use creme fraiche)
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon freshly grated lime peel
salt and pepper
Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a saucepan. Add onion and saute until transparent. Add wine, bring to boil, then reduce until wine is almost evaporated. Turn heat to low and add sour cream, heating through but not bringing to boil. Add lime peel, stir, and take off heat. Set aside and keep warm.
Add remaining butter to large skillet and once melted, add tilapia (season with salt and pepper first). Cook until nicely browned, just a few minutes on each side, turning once. Place fish on serving platter and top with sauce. Serve additional sauce on side.
