This is a delicious version of Tilapia that we adapted from a Bon Appetit recipe. We served it with the quinoa recipe linked below. It was a great combination. I put only a small amount of the sauce over the fish as the salt/pepper/paprika tilapia sauteed with a little butter is delicious all by itself!

  1. Sprinkle tilapia fillets with salt and pepper and 1 teaspoon paprika. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add fish and cook until just opaque in center, about 2 minutes per side.
  2. Add shallots to skillet and sauté until beginning to soften, about 2 minutes. Add white wine and boil until reduced by about half, about 3 minutes. Add parsley, whipping cream, lemon peel, and 1/2 teaspoon paprika; stir until thickened to sauce consistency, about 1 minute. Season sauce to taste with salt and pepper. Spoon sauce over fish.

    I really enjoyed this new tilapia recipe. It adds a wonderful flavor without overwhelming the flavor of the fish. Would be great with red snapper, catfish, and just about any other white fish.
    I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
