       WOW, another Valentine's Day come and gone - Oh well, who gives a flyin' flippola...let's have a drink!   Now we're talking :)   Sticking my head in the freezer this week I discover fish fillets...YEEHA! I do believe we can rock out a recipe in no time with all the jazz I keep around this place.  Tonight, it must be "Something Fishy This Way Comes" (I just kill me :)  I could always batter-up these puppies & fry them but NAAA.      Lemme see what I've got:
     1. 4 lrg Tilapia fillets (any white fish will do) 
     2. 1 (or 2 depending on yer taste buds) .07oz packet of Italian dressing mix, I have Good Seasons
     3. 1 tablespoon capers (don't have capers, no biggy, I just love the twang they provide)
     4. 1 lrg lemon 
     5. olive oil to cook with
     6. Cocktail or tarter sc. if you like that sort of stuff (I LOVE Texas Pete Pepper Sauce on my fish
         but hey that's just me)
Got to wet the whistle - aaahh yes, much better, thanks for asking! Let me just say, this is probably the quickest, easiest recipe you will ever see me put together but that's a good thing
 right?...huh?...huh?     Okay, that's enough of that.
          Drizzle a little olive oil in the bottom of a large non-stick skillet & heat on med. heat
          After it warms up some, toss the capers in & allow them a few mins. to flavor the oil  
          Meantime, sprinkle the dressing mix over both sides of the fish fillets trying to keep the 
              mix spread as evenly as possible (we sure don't want any little fishy left out)!
          Carefully place the fish into the hot pan. Cook approx. 4-5 minutes on each side depending on 
              the thickness of the fillets (don't overcook, you just want the fish white all the way through)
THAT'S IT!! Was I right...well, was I right??? How fast was that! I'm thinkin' some big ol' salty potato wedges or herbed roasted tates would be great with this recipe unless of coarse your trying to be healthy, then you could do roasted veggies instead but for my's got to be potatoes!!!
  So with another drink, a few gorgeous lemon wedges and a dollop of your fave sauce you will again realize that this recipe is DERN TASTY!!!


  1. WOW you are right ~fast and easy~I alays have packs of gravies and stuff like that laying around~Thanks once again Pattie~happy cooking : )~Paula
