After a long day (usually starting at 530am) the last thing I want to think about is cooking. The truth is, my husband usually does all of the shopping and cooking (total bonus package, I know). Recently, the tables were turned (literally) and I had to make dinner. Since my usual after 5pm routine is to sit with the kids and do homework, I couldn’t imagine what I could possibly put together besides some noodles and cheese.
Fortunately, there was some Tilapia in the refridgerator, however, I didn’t know what to do with it. Then I remembered my friend Leah Schapira and her incredible wealth of a website, CookKosher.com. I searched for what to do with Tilapia and I found an easy, no fuss, recipe. The title, Fried Tilapia, was just what I needed.
Since I am now gluten free, I substituted the flour with rice flour and the cornflake crumbs with Gluten Free Panko.
This recipe, which you can find here, is so easy. Just look at these instructions:
1.Take 3 bowls and in one bowl put flour, the second bowl egg and the third bowl corn flake crumbs.
2.Place oil in frying pan and heat up.
3.Place each piece of tilapia fillet in flour first then egg and then cornflake crumbs.
4.Place breaded tilapia in frying pan and fry for a few minutes on each side.
The ingredients, one of which we had in the house, are also very simple and easy:
2 lb fresh tilapia
2 cup flour (gluten free substitute with rice flour)
2 cup corn flake crumbs (substitute with Jeff Nathan’s Gluten Free Panko Flakes)
½ cup oil
How did this recipe work for you? Did you substitute any of the ingredients or just keep them the same.
