Sauteed Tilapia with Lime Recipe

Sauteed Tilapia with Lime
Tilapia is commonly known as the South African fish. This fish is very flexible whereby it tastes very good in any way you cook it. You can either fry it, steam it or even cook it with curry. Below is the recipe for sauteed tilapia with lime.


  • 1 -1 1/3 lb tilapia fillet , about 1/2 inch thick
  • tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • salt and pepper
  • clove garlic , minced or pressed
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • tablespoon olive oil
  • green onions , chopped
Method of Cooking:

    1. Rinse the fish and pat dry.
    2. Put the flour on a plate and season it with salt and pepper.
    3. Dredge the fillets in the flour, patting to remove excess.
    4. In a small bowl, combine the garlic, wine, lime juice and butter, then set aside.
    5. Heat the oil in a 10 to 12-inch frying pan over medium-high heat.
    6. Add the fillets without overlapping and cook until golden on the bottom, about 3 minutes.
    7. Turn the fillets over and cook until opaque through the thickest part, 1 to 2 minutes more.
    8. Transfer the fish to a platter and keep warm (cover with foil or place in a 200 degree oven).
    9. Add the wine mixture to pan and boil, scraping up cooked bits, until reduced by half, 2 to 3 minutes.
    10. Stir in the onions and heat on low about 30 seconds and pour the sauce over the fish and serve.
