Pan Fried Tilapia

9 Apr

I have been trying to incorporate more fish into my diet, since it is so good for you. I liked that this recipe could be made in about 15 minutes. If you don’t like fish that has a strong taste, then tilapia is for you. The tilapia is sautéed in olive oil, which gives it a slight crunch. Make sure and season well with salt and pepper.

2 (4 oz) tilapia filets

2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil

1 egg

1/4 cup seasoned Italian bread crumbs

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

1/4 teaspoon oregano

salt and pepper to taste

Beat an egg in one bowl, and mix bread crumbs and seasonings in another bowl. Dip fish in egg first, followed by bread crumb mixture. Add olive oil to a hot non stick pan on medium high heat. Rotate pan around until olive oil covers the bottom of the pan well. Place tilapia in pan, and cook one each side for about 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with fresh lemon if desired.

**Serves 2, 5 WW points+ each serving
