Gatorbek's Breaded and Fried Tilapia

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Gatorbek

The spicy breading gives this dish a kick without overpowering the mild tilapia flavor. Excellent with a good remoulade sauce!

Tried this recipe for the first time today and as usual, the first time I make no changes to the recipe. I follow the recipe to the letter. I will say thought, this recipe will need no adjustments! It is perfect the way it is written! Just for your information, I cooked with Peanut Oil because of the high smoke point .
