Even though salmon is our favorite fish🐟, we do like to mix it up a bit. Tilapia is my next go to fish to cook. I typically pick Tilapia if I forgot to take out something from the freezer or if I am pressed with time and need a quick meal.
A: because it defrosts quickly and
B: because it cooks quickly!
For this recipe, I started by seasoning the fish filets with a bit of salt and pepper. I made a light breading by mixing flour, blackening seasoning, paprika and parsley and then set the flour mixture aside.
In my cast-iron pan (it’s my go to pan 😆), I heated oil and butter. Once the pan was heated and the butter melted, I dipped the filets in the flour breading making sure they were coated on all sides. Then I placed them directly in the pan.
It only takes a couple minutes on each side before the filets are cooked. I try not to over cook them so they stay juicy and not dry! You want them to be a nice golden brown.
For this meal, I served the filets with rice and my go to – Italian seasoned zucchini. The rice cooking in the rice cooker is what took the longest. But all together it was a quick and easy dinner in only about 15 minutes! What is your go to quick dinner?
Live to eat,
One thought on “Pan Fried Tilapia”
My go to meal is fried rice since I always have rice. Lol. Tilapia is one fish I like but your dad never seems to want to buy.
