There are so many reasons to go nuts for Nutty Lemon Tilapia. First off, it only takes 10 minutes to make: fast food would find its head spinning at that speed! Next, it's easy: 7 steps are all that separate you from a full-fledged main course with sumptuous sauce. Most importantly, it's amazing: Nutty Lemon Tilapia has savory, flaky fish served alongside a buttery, bright sauce and topped with crunchy almonds. It's crazy how fantastic this dish is!


Ingredients

4 (4-ounce) tilapia fillets
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions

Step 1

Sprinkle the fillets with salt and pepper.

Step 2

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat.

Step 3

Step 4

Transfer the fillets to a plate and keep warm.

Step 5

Add the butter, wine, and lemon juice to the skillet.

Step 6

Cook and stir until the butter is melted.

Step 7
