Tilapia W/ Citrus Bagna Cauda created by kymgerberich

Adapted from Everyday Italian, the flavors are heavenly in this dish! I recommend(from reading reviewers advise) that you double the sauce!

ingredients

directions

  • Cook the butter and 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil in a heavy medium saucepan over medium low heat just until the butter is melted, stirring frequently. Add the anchovies, if using, and stir until the anchovies dissolve, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook just until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Remove from the heat. Stir in the orange juice, basil, and lemon and orange zests. Season the sauce, to taste, with salt.
  • The bagna cauda sauce can be made 1 day ahead. Cool, then cover and refrigerate. Rewarm it before using.
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
  • Sprinkle the fish with salt and pepper and brush both sides of the fish with the remaining 4-8 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil. Working in 2 batches, fry the fish until just opaque in center, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer fish to platter. Cover with foil and keep warm in the oven while cooking the second batch of fish. Drizzle the sauce over and around the fish and serve. Enjoy!

    All of the prior reviews here are correct. Heavenly is right! Yes, you cannot tell, so, if you are an anchovy avoider, do not leave them out. Made half the fish but the same amount of sauce but used extra anchovy fillets. I agree that would not be enough sauce for 6 fillets. Double it if you are making that many,

    Simply delicious, light and healthy.

    Out of this world delicious! This will be in regular rotation in our dinner menu at home! A word about anyone who is hesitant to use anchovy (filets or paste) I have found that many people who say that they don't like anchovy-really don't. But I have also found it's because they have eaten dishes where too much was used or an actual fillet made it's way into their mouth. No, No! Use it as a seasoning. The richness and depth anchovy used as a seasoning bring to a dish is indescribable. Yum...

    Update: We have this recipe at least twice every month. It is wonderful. I serve it with pasta Aoli. This recipe is outstanding if you like Bagna Cauda. This is very quick and the flavor is awesome. I served it with steamed broccoli and ciabatta bread Recipe #29100 to get all the juices. I did substitute lemon juice for the orange juice. You must try this recipe.
