Tilapia Piccata

Tilapia is such a versatile, lean fish. It is safely farmed, so there are no health or environmental concerns, and it's usually available year round. It is the perfect lean protein to build a tasty meal around. I decided to use tasty lemons and capers to make tilapia piccata. This recipe is as lean and simple as possible, no butter or excess salt and it cooks up in just a few minutes. The perfect last minute dinner.

Such a great way to prepare white fish. I do this sort of thing with catfish, because I'm in a state where it's common. Anyway, I love capers!
