This piquant sauce is perfect over plain white fish. Use freshly squeezed lemon juice for the brightest flavor. (Cooking Light March 2004)
- 3⁄4 cup reduced-sodium fat-free chicken broth
- 1⁄4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons drained green peppercorns in brine, lightly crushed
- 1 teaspoon butter
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 12 ounces tilapia fillets or 12 ounces sole fillets
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons butter
- lemon wedge (optional)
- Combine first 3 ingredients.
- Melt 1 teaspoon of butter with oil in a large nonstick skillet over low heat.
- While butter melts, sprinkle fish fillets with salt and black pepper.
- Place the flour in a shallow dish.
- Dredge fillets in flour; shake off excess flour.
- Increase heat to medium-high; heat 2 minutes or until butter turns golden brown. Add fillets to pan; saute 3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove fillets from pan. Add broth mixture to pan, scraping to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil; cook until reduced to 1/2 cup (about 3 minutes). Remove from heat. Stir in two teaspoons of butter with a whisk. Serve sauce over fillets. Garnish with lemon wedges, if desired.
