Tilapia with Balsamic Butter Sauce

I just came across this great new event
"Bookmarked Recipes" hosted
It is such a good idea because we all have
those recipes that we have come across
online or in magazines that we have read
and thought I should make this sometime.
Well, now we can try those recipes out and
share them with fellow bloggers via this event.
My entry for this weeks "Bookmarked Recipes"
is Tilapia with Balsamic, Butter Glaze
By Epicurious
Balsamic Butter Sauce
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 garlic clove
1/2 cup ( 1 stick butter) cut into 1/2 inch cubes

Simmer vinegar and garlic in small saucepan
over medium heat until reduced to thick syrup,
about 5 minutes. Set aside.
**Cook fish**.
Rewarm balsamic syrup over medium-low heat.
Whisk in 1/2 cup butter 1 piece at a time.
2 tablespoons olive oil
6 4- to 5-ounce tilapia fillets
salt and pepper to taste
Heat 1 tablespoon oil in each of 2 large skillets over high heat.
Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper.
Sauté fish until golden, about 2 minutes per side.

This is a very nice dish.
The balsamic, butter sauce is just right on the fish!!

Yea, I found the comment box. Balsamic butter sauce was the BEST. We almost licked the plate. Nice "low carb" meal.

I used just half a stick of butter and it was still very buttery and very rich. The sauce made the tilapia more robust than the usual light preparations that I lean towards for tilapia. Thanks for inspiring variety in my menu this week!
