I often eat at Macaroni Grill and order their Pollo Scaloppine. I thought I might try and adapt it at home using a mild fish. My husband was amazed at what I came up with. It's good with salad, brown rice and crusty bread.

Directions

  1. Heat olive oil with butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic. Place fish fillets in the skillet; sprinkle the fish with salt and pepper, and cook for 90 seconds. Turn the fish; season with salt and pepper, and cook an additional 90 seconds.
  2. Add the mushrooms, capers, and wine. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer until the fish flakes easily with a fork and the wine is reduced by half, 6 to 7 minutes. Remove the cover, pour in lemon juice, and cook for one minute.

LOVE macaroni grill so this recipe jumped out at me! I followed this recipe exactly. Next time I will only juice half a lemon as the lemon flavor was a little strong for my taste. Served with spinach spaghetti.

Delicious recipe! The only change I made was to remove the fish after it was sauteed--kept warm in the oven while I finished the dish. I don't want to overcook these delicate fillets while sauteeing the mushrooms, etc.! Put the tilapia back into the pan to let it soak up the tasty sauce, and serve with fettucine noodles and parmesan cheese sprinkled over the top.

I had some flounder, which I usually make it stuffed with whatever I have available. However, these fillets were too small, so I made it with this recipe. I prepared it minus the capers (since I didn't have any)and it was wonderful. Try it, you'll like it.
