Droolicious Cuisine at Tilapia Piccata

This is a 15-minute recipe that I found in Cooking Light that all of the family loves…Husby requests it on a regular basis, and we never seem to get tired of eating it. You can substitute most any flaky white fish or use veal or chicken cutlets. This recipe pairs well with a side of sauteed spinach or a mixed field greens salad. I modified the recipe a little bit to suit our tastes. This recipe yields 4 servings. Enjoy!
