  • 2/3 cup cucumber peeled, chopped, and seeded
  • 1/2 cup radishes chopped
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tbsp tarragon vinegar
  • 1/4 tsp dried tarragon
  • pinch sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 4 tilapia fillets 6 oz
  • 2 tbsp butter or margarine


  • Combine the first seven ingredients in a small bowl. Mix them well and let them stand at room temperature as you prepare the fish. 
  • Season the tilapia lightly with salt and pepper and sauté it in butter or margarine in a large skillet over medium heat for 2-3 minutes on each side. Alternatively, you can saute the fish until it begins to flake easily (test this using a fork). 
  • Transfer the fish onto serving plates and spoon cucumber relish over each serving. Bon apetit!
