Fried Tilapia

Tilapia is a great (and cheap) white fish. It does not have a super fishy flavor, and kids love it. I enjoy trying out new tilapia recipes, so this is another one to add!

Fried Tilapia

1/4 c flour
1/2 c cornmeal
1/4 c mayonaise
1 tsp old bay seasoning
4 tilapia fillets
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter

Place flour and cornmeal in separate shallow bowls. Whisk mayonnaise and old bay seasoning in a small bowl. Dip one fillet in flour; shake off excess. Brush both sides of fillet with mayonnaise, then dip in cornmeal, shaking off excess. Place on waxed-paper-lined baking sheet; repeat with remaining fillets. Heat large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil, then butter. Add fillets and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until golden brown. Turn and cook another 5 minutes.
