Spicy Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

Ingredients:
  • tilapia fillets (cod, crappie, catfish, flounder, halibut would all make excellent substitutions)
  • crushed red pepper flakes
  • parmesan cheese
  • mustard
  • tobasco sauce
  • Zatarain’s Season Fish-Fri (Crispy Southern Style)
  • olive oil

First, rinse the tilapia fillets and pat dry. Next, take a bowl and mix enough of the dry ingredients (fish-fri, parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes).  Take another bowl and put in mustard and a few dashes of tobasco sauce (to taste).  Use only enough mustard to lightly coat the tilapia fillets.

Heat olive oil in skillet.  Use enough oil to cover bottom of fish fillets.  Don’t get olive oil too hot too fast or it will burn! Lightly coat fillets with mustard mix.  Then coat with dry season mix.

Place fillets in oil and fry; turning/flipping fillets and ensuring they are cooked thoroughly.  Remove from oil and place on paper towels to absorb any remaining olive oil.

Serve and enjoy!!

You know what sticks out to me here?...the comment regarding the olive oil. I've been trying to successfully use that over corn oil for a while now and usually have disastrous results, and a funky taste.

I bet I was heating it up too hot too fast.  :wo: Interesting.

yeah you can heat up olive oil too fast without really realizing it!  i generally put mine over medium heat to medium-high heat... and I have a couple of stale tidbits of bread on-hand.... to test the oil I'll put in a piece of that bread.... if it starts to fry slowly I take it out and put in the fish.... if I see smoke coming off of the oil, out the oil goes and new oil goes in and I start all over.... takes a little practice to see exactly what works for your stove-top and then you're on easy street!!

My wife said that I went a bit heavy on the red pepper this time, but I thought it turned out pretty good.

That looks real good to me, Pat.    ;yes;   Looks like you have a nicely seasoned skillet too.
