Directions:

Combine corn meal, flour, salt and pepper in large bowl.

Wet fish with water and dredge through the flour/corn meal mixture.

Heat skillet on medium high with a couple tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil for a couple minutes before adding filets to it. You want to make sure you hear the sizzle when you lay the fish on it.

Cook the fish for three minutes on each side until golden.

If you don’t like tartar sauce with your fish, try a roasted red pepper/ tomato/sweet onion dip - so fresh!


Sounds good

We catch these in the local creeks here on the Gold Coast. The local ponds and lakes are artificially stocked here with lots of these, but I prefer not to eat those -- no way of knowing how impregnated with pesticides/herbicides they are. Locals catch them in nets occasionally when overpopulation occurs, and then sell them to the local resturants. Look out for "locally grown" tilapia.

But the ones that have escaped into the local fresh waterways -- good eating! And despite being plant eaters, tilapia will bite on small bits of shrimp on a small hook.

Tilapia, the panfish we all now have to eat because that’s about all that’s left for regular dinners.

Looks like a good recipe if a something other than Talapia were used.

I’ll give this one a try in the near future. I’ve been cooking tilapia fillets lazy-fashion :Dot with butter, put in microwave in a dish lightly covered with Saran Wrap, nuke for 2 minutes, flip fillets over, nuke for two more minutes, serve (maybe after sprinkling with lime juice or apple cider vinegar). Comes out real well that way, but I’m ready for a change.

Try sprinkling with bread crumbs on top of the butter, don’t flip them.

I like blackened Tilapia.
Cover with Chef Pauls blackening powder.
Put in hot cast iron skillet.
Turn over in about 3 minutes and cook other side.
Done!

I do something similar (minus the corn meal), but spice it up with a liberal amount of granulated garlic and Tony's mixed into the flour.

Yummy!

I’d substitute Walleye. Locally grown. Good stuff.

It is also good left unbreaded and baked on a cookie sheet with thinly sliced lemons, fresh dill, capers, and butter.

I can’t eat this fish. I once saw a documentary how people use them to eat their sewage. Shite eaters, I just could not put one bite in my mouth.

I won’t eat them either. I saw Mike Rose clean their tanks on Dirty Jobs.
Frankly, I don’t like farm raised fish or seafood of any kind.

Not sure if it is throughout the state but here in S.E. Florida snook and grouper is banned for the taking as a result of the freeze and kill off.
Went to a restaurant at the base of the Roosevelt Bridge in Stuart. Sat on the water and saw hundreds of snook, and tarpon float by. Put tears in my eyes.
