Tilapia Francese

Tilapia is a beautiful thing.  And it can be turned into many beautiful things.

And what makes it even more beautiful is that it takes just minutes to make.


Tilapia Francese
slightly adapted from Vero Italiano

3 pieces tilapia
1 egg
1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup flour
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons dry white wine
salt and pepper to taste

Place flour on a plate and season with salt and pepper.  Beat egg with 2 tablespoons of water in a bowl.  Gently place tilapia on plate and coat lightly with flour on both sides.  Place in egg wash, then back in flour.

Add butter and oil to hot skillet over medium heat.  Place tilapia in pan and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side.  Add lemon juice and wine and cook for another 5-7 minutes.  If sauce gets too thick add a tiny bit of water.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

Top with lemon slices and chopped parsley.
