2 tilapia fillets, cut into 2 pieces lengthwise 360 g
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]
2 tbsp white flour (all purpose) 16 g
1 eggs size large
2 tbsp bread crumbs 16 g
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
1/2 lemons, cut into quarters [optional] 60 g

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. Pat-dry the fish fillets then cut each fillet into 2 pieces lengthwise (since the fillet is uneven in thickness, this operation ensures uniform cooking). Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Prepare 3 shallow dishes: one for the flour, one for the egg, and one for the bread crumbs. Beat the egg lightly. Dip one fish piece at the time, first in the flour, then in the egg. Let the excess egg drip off before coating the fish in the bread crumbs. Turn the fish to coat both sides with bread crumbs.
  3. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Sauté the fish 3-5 min on each side, until the bread crumb coating becomes golden-coloured. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve on the warmed plates with optional lemon quarters on the side.

Great taste, and I like the Tilapia, a meaty fish that holds together well.
