    1. 1
      Warm up olive oil in a 10" or 12" skillet.
    2. 2
      Mix the corn meal and Old Bay seasoning thoroughly, then spread out on a platter.
    3. 3
      Coat tilapia fillets lightly, but thoroughly with corn meal and Old Bay mixture.
    4. 4
      Lay coated fillets in hot olive oil (medium-medium high heat) and cook until golden on the bottom, then turn fillets over and repeat.
    5. 5
      Do not overcook the fish--it's easy to do.
    6. 6
      While fillets are cooking, combine Miracle Whip, sweet relish, and lemon juice and stir until well blended, then serve with the fish.
    7. 7
      It's quick, easy, and doesn't require a lot of cleanup.
    8. 8
      Steamed carrots or broccoli and some form of potatoes go well with this.

      This is great! I purchased 6 - yes, 6 - pounds of Tilapia filets without ever having tasted it. We got it yesterday, so today I made a couple for lunch using your recipe. Delicious! And you're right - quick and easy. I'm not a fan of anything that resembles tartar sauce, so I had mine "as is" with a sprinkling of salt and pepper. I'm planning on making this for my Kiddo for lunch tomorrow - she's gonna love it. Thanks!

      Delish! I would cut he seasoning/cornmeal in half next time. I also substituted the olive oil with canola since olive oil can't handle high heat at all.
