Deep-Fried Tilapia (Fish)
15 mins (prep 10, cooking 5)
4 ingredients
4 servings
This is a no-fail recipe for MILD, white, flaky, not greasy, and delicious fish for either sandwiches or as a main entree on a plate. The trick is to get the cooking oil plenty hot, 375-degrees F or higher. Also, there is no "drenching" in egg wash involved in this recipe. Tilapia works best but Whitefish fillets are also great. Use either Canola oil, Peanut oil, or Crisco. Others may "smoke" at high heat. If you wish to mix in additional favorite herbs or spices into the flour, (e.g., a teaspoon of dried basil, or, Old Bay Seasoning), go right ahead. Easy! Enjoy!
