Tilapia Piccata

Now, my kids love fish and I’m always looking for new ways to eat it!


This tilapia piccata is so easy and so good.


You just dredge your fish in a little flour and then cook it off in a pan.


Then mix all of this yummy goodness with some chicken stock to make a sauce.


And there you have it, dinner.  I served mine with some simple steamed quinoa and roasted vegetables.
