 Tilapia in white wine sauce with tomatoes and capers

  • 1 TBS vegetable oil
  • 4 – 6  good sized pieces of tilapia
  • 2 shallots or 1/2 large sweet onion thinly sliced
  • 1 small container of grape tomatoes, whole or sliced in 1/2
  • 1/2 cup (or more) white cooking wine (you can use regular white wine, but use less, cook thoroughly, and you may need another liquid like orange juice or water)
  • 1-2 heaping TBS of capers
  • Optional salt, pepper, fresh lemon to taste

Heat pan to high, add vegetable oil. Once heated add onions or shallots. Cook until clear.  Add tomatoes and cook a few minutes. Lower heat to low/medium and add tilapia and cooking wine.  (As an option you can add a tiny bit of rice vinegar for a more intense/different flavor.)  Cover pan and cook on low/medium for ~10 minutes.  Add capers in 1/2 through.  Keep cooking until fish turns completely white.  (~15-20 minutes max.)   As desired add salt, pepper, fresh lemon to taste.
