tilapia fillets, rinsed and patted dry
Italian seasoned bread crumbs (such as Progresso®)
roasted onion flakes
blackened seasoning (such as Old Bay®)
crushed red pepper flakes
freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
freshly ground sea salt, or to taste
1 1/2 tablespoons
Instead of frying, I drizzled with butter, sprayed with pam and and baked in 400 degree. tasted awesome with less calories
A hit! I'm not the biggest fish fan and have nothing but praise for this easy recipe. I cooked this tonight using Panko crumbs to which I added Italian seasoning. Everything else was per the recipe. All of the spices blended beautifully, and even though I used liberal pinches of red pepper, it wasn't at all hot. It was just nicely seasoned, perfectly cooked and wonderfully crunchy. A definite winner, I'll make this spice blend part of my regular fish rotation. Thanks, crabbyjean! Update: I've made this many times now, and have found that letting the fish rest for an hour in the fridge makes the coating stick even better. I make a big batch of the coating mix using gluten free panko crumbs, Italian seasoning and all the spices so I always have it handy. It's great for coating chicken, too. BTW - I now love fish!
This was DELICIOUS. I happened to have every single ingredient in my pantry and it turned out amazing. I followed the directions exactly. Thanks so much! I will definitely be adding this recipe to my regular dinners. My husband loved it as well! Thanks again.
Today I tried this recipe and it was good. I did not have the roasted onions flakes, so I substituted with Mrs. Dash onion and herb seasoning, I also added 1tsp of parsley flakes. I the place the fish in the egg and milk mixture in a Tupperware bowl with a top and put in the refrigerator for 45 min. Then I put the dry ingredients in a plastic gallon size bag and put the fish in it and slightly shake the bag. I place the fish in a pan (spray pan with Pam) and drizzle the lemon and butter over it. Place pan in the refrigerator for 1 hour and place in oven for 35min on 325 or until golden brown. It was so tasty. This is going to be one of my favorite recipe for my favorite fish Tilapia.
I made some changes....I used panko bread crumbs instead of the regular Italian bread crumbs. I added the juice of one lemon to melted butter, drizzled it on top and baked it (as suggested by another reviewer) It was awesome!
Very yummy! I followed the recipe exactly and will make this again. Next time I may try a little hot sauce in the egg and milk to spice the fish up even more. I used Haddock and it does cook very quickly. I chilled the coated fish for one hour prior to frying.
This was just excellent. Never considered bread crumbs before, so this was a nice surprise. The only changes I made was regular bread crumbs, but added in the classic Italian herbs and left out the red pepper flakes (I live with wimps) and it was lovely.
Can't imagine any light fish that this wouldn't work with very well.
Nice job and thanks for the imagination!
very good. nice crust.
