Fish is great because it takes just a few minutes to cook, so I can easily make it after Colin is asleep and before Jon gets home. I love sandwich night because it also means I get to eat sweet potato fries, and I can't get enough sweet potato fries.
Cornmeal Crusted Tilapia
2 (or 4) tilapia filets
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
Salt and Pepper
Canola oil, for frying
Heat canola oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
Pat tilapia dry with paper towels.
In a shallow bowl, beat the egg.
In another shallow bowl, mix together flour, cornmeal, Old Bay, salt and pepper.
Dip the tilapia in the egg wash, and dredge in the cornmeal mixture.
Fry for about 2 minutes a side, until cooked through and flakes easily.
I served these on toasted rolls with homemade tarter sauce, lettuce and tomato. And sweet potato fries on the side, of course.
Only after I took this picture and ate the sandwich did I realize the baby monitor is in the background. My constant dinner companion.
