For the broccoli rabe, it must be cooked in a pot of boiling water until tender. It takes about 10-12 minutes. If you would like it a little softer then boil a few extra minutes. Drain well. In a sauté pan, over medium heat, add in a few drizzles of olive oil and the sliced garlic. Once the garlic is fragrant add in the broccoli rabe and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
Now those lovely tilapia filets! In one bowl lightly beat an egg with a few drops of water. In another bowl add the seasoned breadcrumbs and some chopped parsley. Dip each filet first into the egg then into the breadcrumb and coat well. Allow to site for about 5 minutes so the breadcrumb sticks better to the fish.
In a large saute pan, over medium high heat, add a few Tbsp olive oil and the tilapia filets. Cook on each side for about 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the pan and place on a cooling rack. Melt a couple Tbsp of butter in the pan along with the juice of 1-2 lemons depending on your preference and how juicy they are.
Once you plate everything pour the lemon butter overtop the fish. Divine and simple!
