Pan-Seared Tilapia with Creamy Leek Sauce

Thursday, June 13, 2013

This is a delicious pan-seared tilapia served with a quick creamy leek sauce, the dish has become a hit with my family and a must weeknight meal. Take a look:

Recipe by Sweet Caroline

4 Tilapia fillets, fresh or thawed
1 large leek (cut in half, thinly sliced, nicely washed and drained)
1/2 cup heavy cream
Olive oil
All-purpose flour
All-purpose seasoning

In a big skillet, heat a couple of tablespoons of olive oil over medium/high heat. Add the leeks and sweat until soft, adding a little water to encourage softening if necessary. Once the leeks are soft, add the heavy cream and bring to a boil. Cook until lightly thickened, season with salt and pepper. Cover and remove from heat. Season the tilapia fillets with the all-purpose seasoning and arrange a plate with flour. Heat a non-stick skillet with a couple of tablespoons of olive oil over medium/high heat, gently press each fillet into the flour to coat nicely, shake off the excess flour and add the tilapia fillets to the nice hot skillet. Cook each side until golden in color. To plate, arrange some creamy leek sauce and top with a nice golden fillet serve with rice and lemon wedges. Enjoy!

I am putting this on my menu. I think leeks are so unappreciated. Jacques Pépin says there is nothing like a leek. I concur.
