Tilapia is such a great fish it is hard to believe I waited this long to try it again. I will definitely be making this more now that Lent has begun. Tilapia is not only a quick and easy main course but also a cheap dinner for those on a budget.

Tilapia doesn't have a strong fish taste and with the right seasonings it is a delicious alternative to more expensive options. I use frozen tilapia fillets. You can purchase the fillets in the frozen food section of your local grocery store.

I lightly season and fry the tilapia, however; another suggestion would be to bake the seasoned tilapia in 13x9 baking dish (be sure to spray with non-stick cooking spray) at 350 degrees F. Tilapia is a healthy choice especially when served with brown rice and a vegetable. Your family will not even realize how healthy this meal is for them.


Serves   : 4 - 6
Prep   : 10 Minutes
Cook   : 10 Minutes
Preheat Oven   : 


Ingredients
4-6    tilapia fillets
4 tbs.    olive oil
   salt
   pepper
   Old Bay seasoning
   garlic powder


Preparation
1.
Defrost tilapia fillets. I put the frozen fillets (in the individual packages) in a bowl or in the sink with cold water. The fillets will defrost very quickly this way.
 
2.
Pour the olive oil into the frying pan and turn to high heat.
 
3.
Season both sides of the tilapia with salt, pepper, Old Bay and garlic powder.
 
4.
Fry the tilapia for aproximately 3-4 minutes on each side at medium-high heat.
   
5.
When fully cooked the fish will be white and almost fall apart.
