Make

  1. Whisk salad dressing and adjust to taste - add some honey or oil if too tart.
  2. Heat a skillet or non-stick pan over medium heat. Add first part of butter. Once butter melts, sear fillets in batches for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, until flaky and golden. Set fish aside and return pan to heat.
  3. Reduce heat to medium. Add remaining butter to the hot pan. Once butter melts and begins to sizzle, add flour and stir until a thick paste forms. Slowly add white wine, whisking vigorously until smooth. Heat until sauce begins to simmer and allow to continue cooking ~2 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in chives and juice from half the lemon. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Crumble goat cheese over spinach, strawberries and almonds. Toss with dressing.
  5. Serve tilapia with lemon-chive butter sauce over the top and extra lemon wedges. Enjoy with salad on the side!

Butter poached ANYTHING - yes please! Used shallots since I didn't have chives - sautéed in second portion of butter before adding the almond meal and it turned out great. Clean plates all around!
