Fried Tilapia Fillets with Lemon Caper Sauce

Serve with a salad and light vinaigrette dressing :-)


  • 4 Tilapia fillets
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 cup Tempura batter mix
  • Ad

  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon very thinly sliced, ends removed
  • 2 Tbsp. unsalted butter, cut in to pats
  • 2 Tbsp. capers, drained
  • white rice


Rub the fillets with salt and pepper.

Spread the Tempura batter mix on a plate; lightly press both sides of tilapia fillets in the Tempura batter mix and repeat.

Heat the oil over medium heat in a large skillet and add the lemon slices. Fry for about 5 minutes and remove the slices.

Fry the tilapia fillets in the same skillet and oil for about 1 to 2 minutes on each side or until easily flaked with a fork and place on serving plates over cooked rice.

Increase the heat of the skillet to high, add the lemon slices, unsalted butter, and capers. Stir for about 2 to 3 minutes, spoon the sauce over the tilapia fillets and rice and serve immediately.
