Tilapia, Shrimp & Scallops Francaise


all purpose Flour (for dredging)
salt and pepper
1/2 stick of Butter
1/3 cup Lemon JUice
Fresh Parsley ( chopped)
1/8 cup of Capers
Tilapia fillets
Uncooked Shrimp
Sea Scallops

Start with the Tilapia- it takes the longest to cook.
Dredge in flour with salt and pepper. Pan fry til browned about 5 minutes. Flip and cook til done ( 4 minutes). I put the cooked fish in a dish in a 200 degree oven until I cook the other seafood.
Then I do the same dredge for the shrimp and scallops. Scallops take 2 to minutes per side. Shrimp about the same. Transfer to pan in oven.
Melt the butter and add the lemon juice. Add the capers.
Once melted together top the fish with your sauce. Add parsley.

Ok- this image shows a massive amount of seafood- we had a dozen people over for dinner, so cook what you need. You can just cook one kind of seafood if you like.
This recipe above is for 2 fillets of Tilapia.
The traditional recipe calls to flour and egg wash and breadcrumb the seafood. I like mine on the lighter side- a little dredge of flour is all that it needs. It also lets the seafood flavor stand out.
The sauce you make will not be thick- don’t worry…its supposed to be that way. dd more or less lemon juice.
Please do add the capers- they are a brined berry from a bush that usually grows in the Mediterranean region.
I remember my Grandmother in the South of France had a caper bush- think of the image from The 10 Commandments where Charlton Heston sees the burning bush- thats it!! but not on fire! smile emoticon
Anyway- this is probably the easiest and quickest recipe I know. It comes out awesome every time.
