Parmesan Crusted Tilapia With Lemon Caper Sauce

"I don't know where I found this, but I had it printed and decided to make it tonight - YUM! Very light and quick to put together. I had a can of artichoke hearts on hand and added 1/2 of the can in the sauce and it was delicious!"

    Fantastic. Easily would have paid $20 for this in a restaurant, and left happy! I put in a cup of white wine and omitted the chicken broth. Used the wine to deglaze the pan then added the garlic, capers, and lemon juice. Also used half the juice from the marinated artichokes as someone else suggested. Chopped up some of the artichokes and added at the end. This was fabulous, makes my mouth water just to think about it!
