Tilapia With Creamy Leeks

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Ms B.

I found this on the Epicurious website, and my husband loved it served with buttered garlic noodles and steamed green beans. The original recipe called for Pollock or Pacific cod, but I always have Tilapia on hand for this easy dish.

This recipe is excellent! My husband says it's the tastiest prepared tilapia he's had and I agree. I used light sour cream and reduced the butter by half and it was still very decadent. Highly recommend!
