Easy, fast, so tasty. Will definitely use this recipe again for a quick meal. I always have frozen tilapia handy and a vegetable multi-grain medley to serve along side with a serving of cole slaw (shredded cabbage, carrots, green onions tossed with bottled vidalia onion dressing). The whole meal is on the table within 45 minutes. As for the tilapia, I soaked it for a few minutes in a dish of low fat milk, as I do with all frozen fish after defrosting, before coating with the spices.

This recipe inspired me to use up some whole wheat flour. For 2 Tilapia filets I used 2 tablespoons of flour mixed with salt and seasonings. Dipped fish in egg, then flour, then fried. Done in less than 10 minutes including cooking time. Thank you!!

Made this today, fiancee said it was the best tilapia we've ever had. Soaked it in milk as a another user suggested :)
