Great basic coating! I added cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Thanks for sharing a keeper!

This is a very good weeknight recipe. The flavor was good and it kept the fish nice and moist during cooking. Thanks for sharing!

I make the Fried Talapi once a week, however, I used Flour and Panko Crumbs to coat the fish before frying.
Combine 1/2 cup Grated Parmesan cheese with 1 1/2 cups Panko Crumbs. Place in a dish, beat 2 eggs with 1 tbsp water, add S & Pepper to taste, use 1 cup flour in a plate with Paprika, garlic and onion powder S & P to taste. Heat the Oil in fry pan till hot but not smoking, Dip fillets in eggwash then in flour, then back into eggwash then into the Panko crumbs, making sure to press fillets into the Panko thats been flavored with S & P and garlic and onion powdered Panko (Japanese Bread Crumbs) Fry in hot oil in frypan. The fillets come out crisp and delicious, I serve mine with our favorite potato dish and a Salad or a favorite cole slaw. Try it you wont regret it. Lucy

This was really yummy! I cooked on my baking stone so no added fat was needed. I did add some extra seasonings to the mixture just to spice it up. I will defiantely be making this often. Thnaks!!

This was just ok for us. I used Tilapia that I had defrosted and maybe that affected the taste of the dish overall. Tilapia is just not a great tasting fish for me. I would definitely use this coating and try again on tilapia or another fish.

My husband decided to surprise me with dinner the other night. Normally I am a bit worried when he gets a notion like that but we both were so delighted with this dish that we are adding it to our weekly menu. The best part is that it was so quick and easy my husband is actually looking forward to making it himself. Thank you!
