I wish listed for spices and read a few of the bios and bookmarked the recipes I'd like to try.
When I came across this recipe for Taste of Summer Tilapia I knew I had to try it. Tilapia is a fish that is recommended on the Flat Belly Diet so it's a staple fish in my freezer. Normally I just bake it or throw it on the grill. I'm always looking for new ways to jazz up my food and always ready to try a new recipe.
Lunch time rolled around and I couldn't get the recipe out of my head. Fish recipes make me giddy. A growling stomach sealed the deal. There is virtually no prep work and the clean up is a snap. Tilapia fillets are sprinkled with seasoning and then coated in seasoned flour and then pan fried. They get drizzled with butter (optional), squeezed with lemon, and sprinkled with parsley.
Yum and yum! Crunchy outside with a moist and flaky inside. This is a well seasoned tilapia fillet.
Perfect pairing is grilled or roasted veggies.
