Pan Grilled Tilapia with Lemon Caper Dressing

This is one of my favorites. The lemon caper dressing makes the dish. I love it.

Season tilapia fillet with salt, pepper, garlic powder or fish seasoning and put it in a non stick pan over medium-high heat; cook the tilapia until the fish flakes easily with a fork, about 4 minutes per side.

Brush half lemon with olive oil and place it on the hot grill, cut side down. Grill lemon until nicely browned, about 5 minutes, turning once. Let it cool and squeeze it in a small bowl. Add 1 tablespoon of drained capers and some olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Wisk and adjust seasoning. (you can skip the olive oil)
Drizzle fish with lemon caper dressing. Serve with steamed broccoli.

  1. This was a very tasty dish. Thanks for publishing it. I'm going to be back here often because I started this diet today and am always looking for ways to make it not seem like a "diet".

    1. Thank you Debbie. This is a very simple and fast meal and with a ton of flavor, the lemon-caper sauce is soooo good, I love the briny flavor. Add fresh garlic or lemon zest to the sauce for extra flavor. Thanks for visiting my blog.
