This is the finale to the Balsamic Butter Sauce meal. Why call it a meal based on that? Well, because I covered every single thing on my plate with this lovely Balsamic Butter Sauce right before serving the meal. Yes, it really was that good.
The original recipe called for tilapia. However, we are huge fans of ono lately, so I used that instead. It was very good. I think in this instance though, the tilapia might have been even better. My husband insists that it was perfect as is, but I’m still thinking that tilapia would have been better. A more delicate fish might have been even more perfect with that amazing sauce. And this meal was most definitely all about the sauce!
Sauteed Ono (or Tilapia) with Balsamic Butter Sauce
- 1 tablespoon light flavor olive oil
- 2 ono or tilapia fillets I used ono, but I honestly think tilapia would have been better with this meal
- kosher salt
- fresh cracked pepper
- Heat oil in large skillet over high heat. Sprinkle fish with salt and pepper. Saute fish until golden, 4 minutes on each side for ono and 2 minutes on each side for tilapia.
- Drizzle with warm balsamic butter sauce right before serving.
