Pan Fried Cajun Tilapia

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by bggio

This becomes a nice tender juicy fish and the breading mixture is excellent mix for this kind of fish. Most fish fillets will work but for this one tilapia works best. Works well with fresh cut fries or garlic and onion rice.

Like another reviewer's mom, this recipe just didn't work for me flavor-wise. DH said it was "fine." I did serve Recipe #43638 over it, which helped a bit. I served with green beans and roasted asparagus on the side.
