Fish Piccata is a delightful dish that combines the freshness of fish with the tangy flavors of lemon and capers. This recipe offers a burst of flavors in every bite, making it a perfect choice for seafood lovers. The fish is cooked to perfection, resulting in a tender and flaky texture that complements the vibrant sauce.


  • 4 fillets of white fish (such as tilapia or sole)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped


  1. In a shallow dish, combine the all-purpose flour, salt, and black pepper. Dredge each fish fillet in the flour mixture, shaking off any excess.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the fish fillets and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the fish from the skillet and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant. Be careful not to burn it.
  4. Add lemon juice and chicken or vegetable broth to the skillet. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook for 2 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
  5. Stir in the capers and butter, allowing the butter to melt and create a creamy consistency. Cook for an additional 2 minutes.
  6. Return the fish fillets to the skillet, spooning the sauce over them. Cook for an additional minute to heat the fish through.
  7. Sprinkle fresh parsley over the top as a garnish.
  8. Serve the Fish Piccata hot and enjoy!
