Tilapia with Lemon Butter Shallot Sauce

This is a great meal for a weeknight~  Served with garlic mashed potatoes.

Tilapia with Lemon Butter Shallot Sauce

3 tilapia fillets
salt and pepper
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 stick of unsalted butter
1 shallot, minced
lemon juice (1 lemon cut in half, squeezed)

Salt and pepper both sides of the tilapia fillets.  Dredge into flour.  Heat oil over medium high heat.  Drop fillets into pan and cook until browned, flipping to brown other side (fish is done when it easily flakes).  Remove fish and put on a plate.  In same pan, melt better and add shallots.  Cook about 5 minutes until shallots are tender.  Squeeze in lemon juice and let cook about 2 minutes.  Spoon sauce on top of fish fillets.
