Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 tilapia fillets
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 (20 ounce) package Simply Potatoes® Shredded Hash Browns
  • 2 12 cups canola oil


  1. Place Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns on large cutting board.
  2. Press with paper towels to remove as much liquid as possible. Using a large knife, chop shredded hash browns into small dice. Press again with paper towels.
  3. Place eggs in shallow dish and whisk until completely blended.
  4. Place flour on a shallow plate.
  5. Run Tilapia through eggs, press flour into both sides and shake off excess, and then press firmly into finely diced Hash Browns. Place on wax paper or parchment paper and let sit for 15 – 20 minutes.
  6. Place canola oil in a large skillet over high heat and bring to frying temperature (very hot without smoking). To test, drop a few of the Hash Browns into the oil and if the oil bubbles all around them, it’s hot enough. Carefully place 2-3 filets into the hot oil. Cook on one side until golden brown, then flip and bring the other side to golden brown, about 6- 8 minutes total.
  7. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels. Repeat with the remainder filets. Serve immediately.
