Lemon Tilapia with Capers

I started making Lemon Tilapia with Capers when my kids stopped eating red meat. I was looking for an easy cooking method and found that using a poaching liquid was a sure fire way to end up with moist, flavorful fish every single time.

Lemon Tilapia with Capers Ingredients
  • 4 Tilapia fillets, thawed (or your favorite fish)
  • 1 cup chicken stock, not broth (I buy the kind in a box)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • 4 thin slices of lemon
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Place fillets in a microwave safe dish. Make a poaching liquid by mixing stock with garlic and capers. Pour over fillets. Put a slice of lemon on each fillet then dot with butter.

Cover with a wet paper towel and microwave on high 5-7 minutes until fish flakes easily. Serve with steamed vegetables and potatoes or couscous.

Note: I recommend chicken stock because it has a much deeper flavor than broth.

Orange Roughy Poaching Liquid

Another great fish option is Orange Roughy. It's very meaty and the liquid cooks it perfectly.

All I do is sprinkle the fish with salt and place in a microwave safe dish. Then I pour a mixture of Old Bay Seasoning (about a teaspoon) and chicken stock over the fish.

Microwave 5-7 minutes and serve.
