Tilapia with Strawberry-Thyme Sauce Recipe
- 1 cup quartered fresh strawberries
- 1/2 cup white wine
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup lemon juice

- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, divided
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 4 tilapia fillets (4 ounces each)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- Crumbled blue cheese or cooked bacon, optional
- 1. In a small saucepan, combine the strawberries, wine, sugar, lemon juice, thyme sprig and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes or until slightly thickened. Discard thyme sprig.
