Fish is great. Cheap fish is even better. We are a fish loving family, heck, we even like those fake orange goldfish cracker snacks. I was working out on our elliptical the other day, while I was watching the Food network...which is kinda counter productive...but let's save that for another day. Anyway, I haven't watched food network in a long time, mostly because of time constraints, but yeah...I admit I was watching Rachel Ray, she made this fish dish and it actually looked good. So, I cut my workout short and headed straight to the grocery store. This was a wicked fast way to cook tilapia, and it was yum. So, if you want a quick and easy meal this week I suggest you hop off the treadmill and head to the store.
Balsamic Brown Butter Tilapia
from Rachel Ray
- 4 (6 to 8-ounce) tilapia fillets
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
Heat 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook fish 4 minutes on each side. Remove fish from skillet to a platter and cover loosely with foil to keep warm. Reduce heat to medium and add butter to pan. Brown butter, 2 to 3 minutes, stir in balsamic and simmer 1 to 2 minutes to reduce by half. Pour the brown butter and vinegar over fish.
