Step 1

Dredge tilapia fillets in seasoned flour.

Heat oil in a large nonstick saute pan over medium-high heat. Add fillets and cook until golden brown on one side, about 5 minutes. Turn gently
and cook for 3 minutes, or until fillets flake easily with a fork. Remove to a warm oven.

Add wine, shallots and tomato to the pan and cook, stirring frequently, for 2-3 minutes, or until liquid is reduced by a third.

Add cream, garlic and half of the rosemary and boil, stirring frequently, until reduced by half. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Spoon sauce over fillets and sprinkle with remaining rosemary.
