Recipe By Chef Jim Coleman

For your next Friday Fish Fry replace deep-fried fish with this lightly sautéed version.

Makes 4 servings

 

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon powdered thyme
  • ½ teaspoon powdered oregano
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon chili powder
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground paprika
  • 1 pound tilapia fillets, skinned
  • 4 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 tablespoon oil, for frying

Directions

    1. Combine flour and spices and mix well. Brush fillets with butter, then rub spice mixture all over fillets.
    2. Heat oil in iron frying pan over high heat until very hot. Add fillets and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side or until fish is opaque and beginning to flake when tested. Serve immediately.

Notes: Start with a really hot frying pan. The fish will sizzle immediately and will result in a very crisp, dark coating.
