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.
very good. nice crust.
Great spicy taste for fish. Since we don't like tilapia, I used sole and it came out wonderful. Thanks so much for the recipe.
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.
Very tasty. I used garfish and fried some onions to garnish the fish. Great with a light salad.
This fried fish is really good. I did not change anything except putting the fish in the refrigerator for one hour per other reviewers.
