Friday Recipes: Tilapia

I am in the mood for fish and have tilapia on hand so here are 3 recipes I found that would work with the Dukan diet! 

Grilled Tilapia with Bearnaise Sabayon and Baby Bok Choy
4 7-oz tilapia fillets
1 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup minced shallots
2 fresh tarragon sprigs
1 tsp white wine vinegar
3/4 cup water
8 baby bok choy, trimmed, cut lengthwise in half through core
lite salt
4 large egg yolks
2 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon
tbsp olive oil
  1. Boil wine, shallots, springs and vinegar in saucepan until liquid is reduced to 2 tablespoons, about 9 minutes. Cover and remove from heat. Let stand at room temperature.
  2. Combine 3/4 cup water and bok choy in large pot. Cover and cook until crisp-tender, turning occasionally, about 5 minutes. Drain.
  3. Sprinkle bok choy with lite salt and pepper. Cover to keep warm.
  4. Whisk egg yolks and 3 tablespoons water in medium metal bowl.
  5. Set bowl over saucepan of barely simmering water.
  6. Whisk until mixture is light and foamy.
  7. Whisk in shallot-wine reduction and chopped tarragon. Remove from heat and brush with oil.
