Mediterranean Tilapia with Lemon Caper Sauce {Cooking Club}

Here is another recipe from Mediterranean night at cooking club. This is what I brought. It was delicious, and not hard to make at all! I had never cooked with capers, but now that I have a huge jar from Costco, I think I will use them more often! haha This recipe is so easy. You cook the fish in a pan with olive oil and then top it with a lemon caper sauce that you simmer over medium low heat for 20 minutes. The sauce has a perfect flavor, and was perfect for cooking club and for This Mommy Cooks too!

Mediterranean Tilapia with Lemon Caper Sauce

Serves 4

1 pound tilapia, cut into 4 oz pieces
8 tablespoons flour
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic
1 ½ large lemon, zested and juiced
1 ½ cups white wine
2 tablespoons honey
2 tsp oregano, dried
8 tablespoons capers, drained
8 tablespoons low fat feta cheese, crumbled 

Heat a small non-stick skillet over medium high heat and add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add onion and cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes to soften. Add garlic, lemon and zest, wine, honey, capers and oregano. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low and simmer to reduce by half about 20 minutes. Set aside.

While sauce simmers, heat a large non-stick skillet with one tablespoon olive oil. Season flour with salt and pepper to taste, dredge tilapia in flour mixture and add to pan. Cook 4 – 5 minutes per side, dependent on how thick your tilapia is, until the meat is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.

Top tilapia with sauce and feta cheese.
