I want to make some tilapia for dinner but I want to do something different than my usual bake and serve... Ideas? I searched 'tilapia' on this website but did not find anything that enticed me
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
HalfPint is a trusted home cook.
How about dusting it lightly with flour or Wondra, pan fry in a little oil/butter, and a few capers & lemon juice? Sort of like a tilapia piccata.
Also, any of the white fleshed fish can be substituted in for tilapia (in most cases)
Tilapia oreganata (sp?). It is still bake and serve but this way you have some panko mixed with a little oil, lemon juice, oregano, garlic, parsley. Add enough oil that when you squeeze the panko, it holds its shape (sort of) and add enough lemon juice to taste. It provides alot of texture but keeps the meal simple.
