Number of Servings: 4


    2 tsp unsalted butter
    4 tilapia fillets (4 oz each)
    pepper, to taste
    2 Tbsp white wine
    2 Tbsp lime juice
    1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
    1 tsp ginger
    1/8 tsp cayenne pepper


In a skillet over medium high heat, melt butter. Season tilapia with pepper and saute quickly (2-3 minutes per side); remove from skillet and keep warm. Add lime juice and wine to skillet and using a whisk, scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Bring to a boil. Bring to a boil, when add chicken broth, half and half, ginger and cayenne pepper. LOWER HEAT IMMEDIATELY OR SAUCE WILL BREAK! Cook over medium heat for about 2 minutes, stirring constantly. When sauce has reduced and thickened. Serve sauce over tilapia. I also like to make caulilflower on the side and pour sauce over that as well.
