    For a piccata it’s quite bland. The second time I made it, I added the zest and juice of a lemon and two garlic cloves for two filets. I kept the rest of the recipe as published in order to have lots of sauce. Much better the second time with a taste like Italian restaurants.

    I made this on a very regular basis for quite a while. Delicious and simple.

    My wife LOVED this. She often gets it a Italian restaurants and thinks this is right on par with those. We will make it quite often.

    Nice recipe that is quick to make. I used 2 garlic cloves and 2 Tbsp of lemon juice, and it was perfect. I didn’t use any salt because the capers and broth are already salty. Served it with French green beans.

    Very good but I added some dijon mustard to give it a little kick.

    Tasted great and the tilapia is good chicken substitute. I would make it again.

    Wonderful flavor! The sauce was subtle enough not to overpower the tilapia. I will make this again

    The sauce was bland. I will try it again adding more lemon juice and capers.

    I used the recipe using salmon, shrimp and lobster tail. It was THE BEST piccata recipe I have tried! Hubby and I made this as our Valentines dinner; it will remain in our recipe file for next year!

    Very good rather simple to make dish. Maybe could add more wine and broth to make more sauce to serve with pasta.

    One of my favorite tilapia recipes. Very flavorful. I'm normally not big on capers, but works very well here. Simple and quick to make.

    So freaking good! I've never made a piccata before so I was a bit nervous about how the sauce would turn out but this recipe was on point! The sauce was the perfect combination of citrus and buttery goodness.

    Very delicious recipe and super easy. Used Pinot Grigio and kept the recipe as is. Will definitely make again. It will also be very good with chicken too.

    This was absolutely delicious as well as fast and easy. Because my fish was so large I has to cook two at a time after making the sauce I put the fish in a dish and then I covered with the sauce. When I asked my boyfriend it he liked, he just bobbed his head with a mouth full of food. I think that mean extra good....
