This recipe comes from the queen of tasty, fast and simple-to-prepare meals - Rachael Ray. We could eat this every day (if it weren't for the butter!)

  1. Salt and pepper the fish and dredge in the flour. Shake off any extra flour.
  2. Heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
  3. Pan fry the fish for 4 minutes per side.
  4. Remove fish and set aside, but keep it warm.
  5. Brown the butter slowly over medium heat.
  6. Add balsamic vinegar.
  7. Simmer until volume reduces by half. It should be somewhat like a syrup, but not that thick.
  8. Pour over tilapia fillets and serve immediately.
  9. Healthier Ideas: Try baking the tilapia for less fat. (Not sure what to suggest about the butter! LOL!).
