Easy Tilapia Sliders

Serves 4-6

1/2 cup reduced fat sour cream

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1/4 cup fresh dill

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 lemon, juiced

3 tablespoons capers, divided

salt and freshly ground pepper

1/2 loaf french bread

3 (6 ounce) breaded tilapia fillets (optional: bread and fry your own–However they come breaded at Costco and this saves time)

1/2 cup baby arugula leaves

3 tablespoons thinly sliced red onion.

Preheat your oven to 400.

In a small Cuisinart, combine sour cream, mayonnaise, dill, garlic powder, onion powder, lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon of capers.  Puree until smooth and then season to taste with salt and pepper.

Next, slice your french bread into 1 inch slices and toast until golden brown.  Then, toast your tilapia fillets in the oven for about 15-20 minutes, turning halfway through to finish.  (Otherwise, if you bread them yourself, use Panko and lightly fry them for about 3-4 minutes per side over medium-high heat until golden brown and flaky when cut).  Once tilapia is golden brown and fully cooked, divide each fillet into 1/3’s.

To assemble sliders:  top each slice of toasted french bread with a spoonful of dill sauce, several leaves of arugula, a couple of slices of red onion, a small piece of tilapia, a little extra dill sauce, and a sprinkling of capers.  Serve on a large platter so guests can help themselves.  Delicious!
