Fried Fish (Tilapia)

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes


  • 6-8 pieces tilapia
  • 1 cup flour
  • ¼ cup bread crumbs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp. dried parsley
  • 2 eggs
  • Vegetable oil for frying, enough to coat about 1/4 inch of the bottom (amount will vary depending on skillet size)


  1. Clean off and dry the fish completely. 
  2. Season the fish with salt and pepper on both sides.
  3. In a dish or mixing bowl add in the eggs and season with salt and pepper. Mix well and set aside.
  4. In a separate dish add in the flour, bread crumbs, salt, pepper and dried parsley. Mix well.
  5. Working one piece at a time, coat the fish in the egg and then directly into the flour/ bread crumb mixture. Coat both sides making sure to shake off any excess. Place on a clean plate and continue this process until all the fish filets are coated.
  6. In a skillet add in enough vegetable oil to coat about ¼ inch of the bottom.
  7. Leaving the heat on medium let the oil heat up.
  8. Once the oil is hot add in a few pieces of the fish into the skillet.
  9. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until fully cooked through.
  10. Place on a paper towel lined plate to soak up any excess grease. Continue to do this until all the fish is cooked.
  11. Plate and ENJOY!
