After a very long, hot summer day in New York, I still had to muster enough energy to prepare dinner for my family. Thanks to my husband, there was nice package of fresh Tilapia fillets sitting in the refrigerator. Would my kids go for this? I just wasn’t convinced that plain fried Tilapia would go over well. I needed to enhance these beautiful displays of fish so that the pallet of a 4 year old would want to eat dinner.
I looked high and low for a way to make them more “kid friendly”. There, on the very top shelf of the spices, I found my “dinsperation”. Just as square as the day it was bought, an unused box of Manischewitz Potato Pancake mix became the star of the show. This would be the perfect coating for the Tilapia!
So, I created a Tilapia Fillet Covered in Potato Pancake Mix! Maybe this has been done before, but I was beyond thrilled with the results. So thrilled that I just had to share it with you here!
This is how I did it!
Tilapia Fillet With Potato Pancake Crust: What You Will Need
Canola Oil (enough to cover the bottom of a frying pan)
1 lb of Tilapia Fillets
1 Box of Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix
How To Make It
Put canola oil in a pan and heat up enough so small bubbles appear
While oil is heating up, put 1 box of Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix in a bowl
Add 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, mix, and set to the side
Crack 2 eggs (you may need a 3rd) and check each yolk for blood spots
Put all eggs in one bowl and mix
Take 1 piece of Tilapia and dip it into the egg
Once dipped into the egg, put into Manischewitz Potato Pancake Mix and cover both sides with it
Add to heated oil
Cook 5-7 on each side (this may vary according the heat source)
Flip onto the other side for 5-7 minutes
Remove from heat source. Ready to serve. I served this with tomatoes, corn, and a side of whole wheat pasta.
