All measurements are approximate as I don't measure anything unless I am baking... LOL! I served this over creamy parmesan rice with a side of fresh steamed green beans and homemade drop biscuits. My husband-to-be absolutely loved it.

  7. Combine olive oil and butter in a large skillet over med-high heat.
  8. Pan-fry seasoned tilapia filets in oil mixture, turning once, until opaque and fish flakes easily with a fork. (about 5 minutes each side, depending on thickness of filet)
  9. Top each tilapia filet with a spoonful of the sauce and enjoy!
