This is what I make if I am uninspired by the contents of my fridge and/ or I’m in a hurry. It always tastes delicious, so there aren’t any complaints when I make it. Here’s the recipe (such as it is):
tilapia filets (one for each person)
paprika (to taste)
salt (to taste)
pepper (to taste)
1/2 cup AP flour
1-2 T. butter
Rinse and dry the tilapia filets. Sprinkle with paprika, salt and pepper to taste. Dredge the filets in the flour, and shake off excess. Melt the butter in a non-stick or well-seasoned cast iron skillet. Pan fry the filets until golden brown and delicious, and the inside flakes when cut with a knife. Serve with rice and steamed veggies, or on top of a bed of greens for a healthier option.
This “recipe” also works great with boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Just be sure to pound them out to an even thickness.
