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
- Balsamic Butter Sauce
- 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.

That looks good! I love tilapia and what's great is that my 2 year old loves it too. I only have 2 recipes on tilapia, so I'm definitely adding this one.

wow look and that drizzle! Such a healthy well-rounded meal, I love it. Tilapia is one of my favorites too because it's so easy to work with and flavor up.

Thanks Mary, I'm always looking for easy new ways to serve fish, and this is new to me. Tilapia is an under-appreciated fish, in my opinion, I can't wait to make this.
O what a fantastic idea for balsamic butter sauce:))Will definitely try.Love balsamic..when you think how long it needs to see the light 🙂
This is a good idea. I'm cooking haddock tonight, and your balsamic butter sauce would make a great finishing sauce!
The sauce looks and sounds amazing!
Oh Mary, love the idea of this dish…so simple and yet so tasty, great combination…butter and balsamic.

We love tilapia here and I have yet to try the balsamic Butter sauce.
Given my love of balsamic vinegar, I'm pretty sure I need this sauce in my life. I'm also pretty sure I could bathe in it. Swoon.
