Tilapia Fillets With a Creamy Shrimp Wine Sauce

tilapia loins in creamy wine sauce-shrimp-wine-sauce-heavy cream-seafood recipe-easy

Seasoned & floured tilapia loins are fried and served over a warm creamy shrimp wine sauce that is made easy and done in one frying pot! The slow simmered wine sauce evaporates and creates a gourmet sauce that is way better than a sauce you may have tried at a chain restaurant. 

A big thanks to my friend (Lub) for sharing her easy tilapia dish! I love that it’s simple and delicious! The slow simmering technique is key to create a delicious and creamy sauce so patience is much needed to get the right texture and flavor. Boiling the wine over high heat will only result in the wine to disappear faster and leave you with a dry skillet and a sweet cream. Don’t be intimidated on the amount of wine as that will evaporate out, surely but slowly. Try this simple and gourmet like dish the next time you want to make a fancy dinner.
