I have found that we are really enjoying Tilapia. Over the past few years, I’ve been introducing new types of seafood into our weekly menus and this fish is one that’s affordable and real simple to make. It can be baked, grilled or pan-fried. I’ll substitute fish on the menu for chicken or meat, depending on the grocery store deals for the week. If they are not at their best price per pound, I’ll stock up on fish.
Tilapia with a Creamy Lemon and Dill Sauce
6 tilapia fillets
3 Tablespoons flour
2 Tablespoons Italian dressing
3/4 cup chicken broth
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup cream cheese
1 Tablespoon dill
Coat the fish on both sides with flour.
Heat dressing in a medium skillet on medium heat. Add fish; cook 4 to 5 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily with fork. Remove from skillet; cover with foil to keep warm.
Add broth and lemon juice to skillet; cook 3 minutes or until reduced by half, stirring frequently with whisk. Add cream cheese and dill; cook 1 minute or until melted, stirring constantly. Pour over fish. Sprinkle with extra dill.
