    Recipe Introduction

    "This is a delicious fish made with capers, tomatoes, butter, and white wine that can be used with any fish you like. My husband loves this dish!"

    List of Ingredients

    6 (3 ounce) fillets tilapia fillets
    1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons olive oil
    salt and pepper to taste
    3 lemon, halved
    1-1/2 cups white wine
    6 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
    1/2 cup and 1 tablespoon capers
    3 cups asparagus spears, trimmed and cut in half
    1/2 cup and 1 tablespoon butter


    Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Drizzle fillets with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place fillets in skillet and sprinkle with half of the lemon over.
    Cook for 3 minutes per side, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
    Transfer fillets to a plate, and keep warm.
    Add wine, remaining 1/2 lemon, tomatoes, capers, and salt and pepper to the skillet.
    Increase heat to medium high and boil for 2 minutes to burn off alcohol.
    Reduce heat to low and return fillets to the pan along with the asparagus.
    Cover and simmer 2 minutes more, then transfer fish and asparagus to a serving dish and keep warm.
    Again, increase heat to medium high and whisk in butter, and boil to desired consistency.
    Spoon sauce over fish, and serve.
