Whitefish with Lemon Vinaigrette

Quick Post: I was at a loss as to what I should make for dinner…again. Last night I used my get out of jail free card, and we ordered Chinese. Tonight that wasn’t an option. Yet again, Publix was selling tilapia for $5.99 so that was what I went with. It’s seasoned simply and paired with a fantastic vinaigrette. The family enjoyed this, and I enjoyed the simplicity of the dish and the speed at which it came together; and I will definitely make this again. Thanks for reading, enjoy!

Whitefish with Lemon Vinaigrette – heavily adapted from Giada De Laurentiis

  • 3 TBSP extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 TBSP unsalted butter
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 pounds tilapia
  • Lemon Vinaigrette, recipe follows
Directions –
Meanwhile, heat 3 tablespoons and butter of oil in a 14-inch (or 2 smaller) nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Sprinkle the fillets with salt and pepper. Fry 3 fillets in each pan until they are golden brown and just cooked through, about 3 minutes per side.
Drizzle the vinaigrette over and serve immediately.
Lemon Vinaigrette –
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 TBSP dried parsley flakes
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Blend the lemon juice, parsley, garlic, lemon zest, salt, and pepper in a blender. With the machine running, gradually blend in the oil. Season the vinaigrette, to taste, with more salt and pepper. (* I used my stick blender and it worked great*)
