Meal Mondays: Saucy Lemon Tilapia Fillets


I don’t want you to think Mondays are the only days I cook for my family.  I definitely cook multiple times a week starting on Sunday.  I love sharing some of what I cook with all of you and since I just can’t document EVERY meal I cook, I chose Mondays to highlight something I prepared for my family.

Today we had a 2nd day of no school and I had to stay home with the kids.  They did drive me a bit batty because they were in and out of the house as I was on conference calls.  With all of that activity they were tired and HUNGRY.  I found this quick and easy recipe that took NO time to prepare.  It is delicious too.  Try it and tell me how you like it.



  1. Mix the flour and 1/3 of the seasoning in a shallow dish. Moisten fish lightly with water. Coat evenly with flour mixture.
  2. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add fish; cook 1 to 2 minutes per side or until lightly brown. Add broth, lemon juice and remaining seasoning to skillet. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer 2 to 3 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Remove fish to serving dish; keep warm.
  3. Bring sauce to a boil. Cook 3 to 5 minutes or until sauce is slightly thickened, stirring frequently.
  4. Spoon sauce over fish to serve.
