  1. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Drizzle fillets with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place fillets in skillet and sprinkle with half of the lemon over. Cook for 3 minutes per side, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Transfer fillets to a plate, and keep warm.
  2. Add wine, remaining 1/2 lemon, tomatoes, capers, and salt and pepper to the skillet. Increase heat to medium high and boil for 2 minutes to burn off alcohol. Reduce heat to low and return fillets to the pan along with the asparagus. Cover and simmer 2 minutes more, then transfer fish and asparagus to a serving dish and keep warm.
  3. Again, increase heat to medium high and whisk in butter, and boil to desired consistency. Spoon sauce over fish, and serve.

Good recipe for someone hesitant to cook fish. I bought a bit more fish as 6 oz. of fillets was hardly enough for two people. The sauce makes a lot of sauce and I could have cut back on that. ...

Wow, we loved this! My boyfriend made this last night and it was delicious. He used canned, diced tomatoes instead and didn't serve it with asparagas. Watch salting the fish, as the capers add ...

Excellent recipe, but I coated filets with flour and seasonings first before frying in olive oil and left the extra salt out since the capers are very salty already! I trippled the recipe as we...

I'm giving this five stars because it really is very good and we thoroughly enjoyed it. That being said, I do think this Easy Tilapia would be even EASIER, if you change the process like I did....

I made this as a foil pouch "all in one" baked meal and it was very good. We will definitely do this again - next time on the grill. My method was: on a large sheet of buttered foil laid out...

We loved this dish! The only changes that I made was to add one clove of garlic for my garlic loving husband and since we are not wine drinkers I always sub with chicken broth. It was easy and ...

This is my recipe and I don't know why there is a bottle of wine in the recipe. It should only be the 1/2 cup of wine. Please change this if you can. Thank you!
