4 (4 ounce) fillets
salt and pepper to taste
unsalted butter, melted
First of all, my fish looked like the picture which AMAZED me because although I'm not a beginner cook I tend to over batter fish. This was AMAZING. My fiance loved it! There are things I changed just to suit my tastes...(I am sure the original recipe would have been just as good.) I added onto the normal salt and pepper...Old Bay, garlic salt, more paprika, a little ground red pepper, onion powder and then I dusted it with flour. What helped me know that the pan was hot enough was something I learned from the Food Network. I just took a tiny pinch of flour and tossed it in the oil...if it started to cook or bubble...that's how you know it's ready for the fish. I did not use the extra unsalted butter. THIS WAS AWESOME! My fiance ate the whole thing before I could sit down! He said it was better than his mom's! :) He even told his mom about it! Thank you so much for this dish!
First time trying tilapia - guess I'm not a big fan
So simple and good! You can add whatever seasoning you like to the flour. (I used blackened seafood seasoning) I made a garlic-butter, parsley and lime sauce to go on top. yum.
Just made this for dinner tonight. It turned out great. My family and I thought it was a great way to prepare tilapia. My filets didn't need 4 min per side. I only had them on each side for approx. 2 min. Paired this with a green salad and it made for a great, easy and quick weeknight dinner.
Very good! The whole family enjoyed it. I added Old Bay, Garlic Salt, Onion Powder, Paprika, and Crushed Red Pepper to the flour before coating.
It came out better than I anticipated, I rarely use flour for breading fish. And, I've never fried Tilapia, always grilled or baked. Yummy!
I used lemon pepper seasoning instead of regular black pepper. If gave it a hint of lemon flavoring. Very good.
As written we rated a 4 as we felt it needed a little more spice. The next batch we took the advice of others and added in Old Bay Seasoning and left out the butter as we felt in was not necessary. Yummy
