Sautéed Tilapia with White Wine & Lemon Sauce
You can use other white flesh fish as well.

Sautéed Tilapia

Serving Size : 4

1/2 Cup flour
3 tablespoons Meyers Lemon Olive Oil
4 Tilapia Fillets -- fresh
Kosher salt and pepper -- to taste
White Wine and Lemon Sauce (recipe follows)

Prep Work:

# Place flour in shallow baking dish or pie plate and set aside.
# Pat fish fillets with a paper towel, season both sides of fillet with salt and pepper and let stand until fillets are glistening with moisture, about 5 minutes.
#

If you going to make the White Wine Sauce -- do it now while the fish is resting. (Follow the directions for the sauce)

Coat the Fish: Coat both sides of fillet with flour and shake off excess and place them on a separate plate or paper towel, preferably in one single layer.

Sauté the Fish: Heat 2 Tablespoons of the Meyer Lemon Olive Oil over high heat in a large non-stick skillet until oil is shimmering, but not smoking. Place the fillets in a single layer and immediately reduce heat to medium-high. ** Depending on the size of your skillet and the amount of fish your making, you'll have do add more oil and saute the fillets in batches.

Without moving the fish, sauté for 2 to 3 minutes on each side and until the edges of fillet are opaque and bottoms are lightly browned. Use the fish spatula to gently flip fillets.

Transfer fillets onto plate and if you're using the sauce, pour it over now and serve.

NOTES : The sauce that compliments this dish is easy and taste great. The adults like the sauce but picky eating kids won't, so I serve the fish on each individual plate and serve the sauce on the side on the table.

White Wine and Lemon Sauce

1 tablespoon Meyer Lemon Olive Oil
1 shallot (other onion can be substituted in a pinch) -- roughly chopped
1/2 cup white wine
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon fresh parsley
1/2 lemon

In a sauce pan, heat 1 tablespoon of the Meyers Lemon Olive Oil over medium heat

Sauté shallots until softened and beginning to color, about 1 1/2 minutes

Add wine, increase heat to high and bring to boil, boil until reduced to 1/4 cup -- about 3-5 minutes. Remove sauce pan from burner and pour into another container, such as a coffee mug or creamer, through a small strainer to strain out the shallot, and then discard the shallot.

Whisk in butter and parsley -- and a squeeze of half a lemon

Set aside and keep warm until the fish is done.

TILAPIA Texas Style
# One fresh, cleaned, thin, Tilapia fillet per person
Dredge the fillet in a beaten egg, and coat with bread crumbs (both sides)
Season to taste. I like a little fresh ground pepper, maybe a bit of lemon. Flavored bread crumbs ie. Italian seasoning or garlic are fine. Choose what you like.
Lay the fillet flat, and place sliced or shredded Jarlsberg cheese over the top
Roll the fillet (like a swiss roll) with the cheese inside, and secure with a toothpick
Bake at 375 F for approximately 25 minutes Enjoy!

Monya's Alcoholic Yabbies

First, boil up some yabbies in a pot of salted water for a couple of minutes- just enuf to make them easier to shell.

Then let them cool. While they are cooling, fry off some garlic and onion in a pan with some olive oil and butter (50/50) until the onion is golden brown and soft.

Peel the tails of the yabbies and add to the garlic, buttery oil and onion. If you like a bit of spice, add some sweet chilli sauce and some cracked black pepper, then add a very large splash of Galliano.

Make sure the final step is done quickly for 2 reasons: One, you don't want to overcook the yabbies and two, you don't want to cook off all the alcohol :wink:

Serve on a bed of jasmine rice.

Enjoy :)

Harvested some yabbies, so thought we would try out the previous recipe, only to find we had no garlic.

So here is today's recipe:

Loads of yabbies. We used about 3 kilos whole weight, less their shells and claws, use the tails only.

Chop up a cup of aquaponic spring onions and half a capsicum. Fry them off with a teaspoon of ginger. Add a slurp of sweet chilli sauce, a dash of fish sauce and a splash of soy, then add the yabbie tails (pre-cook them for 2 minutes from the boil). Finally, add two big handfulls of roughly chopped eastern bloc watercress. This is the key ingredient, really works well with the asian flavours. Cook until the cress is wilted then serve on a bed of rice. Wash down with a cold beer. We did :lol: Thank goodness it's a Thursday 8)
