Pan Fried Tilapia

I was in the mood for something different for lunch and decided to make some Tilapia.

I started by melting 1 tbsp of butter in a skillet.
Then I seasoned a Tilapia fillet with crushed red pepper, pepper and a little sea salt and added it to the butter.

 Fry the tilapia for a few minutes on each side until there is a bit of a crust forming. Remove the fish from the pan and place in a warm oven while you prepare the sauce.
Remove the skillet from the the heat for a moment and add a little (about 1/4 c.) heavy cream and whisk it up a bit to gather the seasoning from the pan. Put back on the burner over low heat.
Continue cooking over low heat, stirring often. The sauce will begin to thicken after a minute or two. Add a handful of Bleu Cheese crumbles and stir until the cheese is melted. Remove from heat and serve!
Serve the sauce on top of the Tilapia for a delicious bite of fish. I enjoyed mine with a side of oven fried bacon and some celery with ranch dressing!

Very good. I made a modified version where I used shredded parmesan cheese in the cream sauce and added garlic salt. Cucumbers with ranch and some green olives for the sides. Yum
