On my Dinner Table: Crispy Tilapia Strips with Garlic-Lemon Mayonnaise
So I love to cook and try new things. I love making up ideas on my own or taking a recipe and spicing it up. Trouble is I am horrible at measuring the stuff out I use. So I will do my best with the correct measurements in this recipe. If you make any of my recipes I post please come back and leave me a comment with what you and your family thought of it. I love getting feed back from our fans.
Crispy Tilapia Strips with Garlic-Lemon Mayonnaise
What you will need2 lbs tilapia fillets
2 lbs tilapia fillets
1 cup all-purpose flour
3 eggs beaten
2 cups Italian flavored bread crumbs 1/2 cup of shredded cheese
pepper olive oil
2 tbs of minced garlic 1/3 cup lemon juice 1 cup mayonnaise
Rinse each Fillet and lay on paper towel to dry.
While waiting for Fillets to dry, get 3 shallow large bowls. Fill one bowl with flour, salt, pepper. Fill second bowl with 3 eggs beaten. In the third bowl add bread crumbs and cheese.
Finish drying fillets by patting with a paper towel. Cut fillets in half.
Lay out a sheet of wax paper. Dip strip first in flour shake any extra flour back into the bowl. Then dip both side of the strip into the bowl of eggs. Next roll both sides in the bread crumb bowl. Lay on wax paper and continue until all fillets are completed.
Heat olive oil in a on-stick pan over medium heat. Place tilapia strips in pan and cook about 2-3 minutes on each side.
While cooking lets make the sauce. Take the minced garlic, lemon juice, and mayo. Mix in a bowl together.
Take the same wax paper from before and add paper towels on top. When fish is completed transfer to wax paper with paper towels and let sit for a minute to drain any extra oil. Then spoon sauce over top of strips.
