Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons drained brine-packed green peppercorns, lightly crushed
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 2 (6-ounce) tilapia or sole fillets
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • Lemon wedges (optional)

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine the first 3 ingredients.

Step 2

Melt 1 teaspoon of butter with oil in a large nonstick skillet over low heat.

Step 3

While butter melts sprinkle fish fillets with salt and black pepper. Place the flour in a shallow dish. Dredge fillets in flour; shake off excess flour.

Step 4

Increase heat to medium-high; heat 2 minutes or until butter turns golden brown. Add fillets to pan; sauté 3 minutes on each side or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove fillets from pan. Add broth mixture to the pan, scraping to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil; cook until reduced to 1/2 cup (about 3 minutes). Remove from heat. Stir in two teaspoons of butter with a whisk. Serve sauce over fillets. Garnish with lemon wedges, if desired.
