ingredients

directions

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

    This was so good, the only tweak I made was using Creole seasoning instead of old bay, I didn't have any old bay on hand.

    Absolutely wonderful! I made 2 butterflied croakers, about a pound and a half of fresh fish, and this was the perfect amount of cornmeal coating. I was worried about overheating the olive oil so I used Crisco. The flavor is just right for a mild fish. I will definitely be making this again.
