Pan Fried Tilapia

Another very simple recipe...and a healthy one as well.

Ready In: 10 mins

Serves: 2


  • 14 cup olive oil (good quality extra virgin)
  • 12 cup cornmeal
  • 1  tablespoon  Old Bay Seasoning
  • 2  tilapia fillets
  • 2  tablespoons Miracle Whip
  • 1  tablespoon  sweet relish
  • 1  teaspoon lemon juice


  1. Warm up olive oil in a 10" or 12" skillet.
  2. Mix the corn meal and Old Bay seasoning thoroughly, then spread out on a platter.
  3. Coat tilapia fillets lightly, but thoroughly with corn meal and Old Bay mixture.
  4. Lay coated fillets in hot olive oil (medium-medium high heat) and cook until golden on the bottom, then turn fillets over and repeat.
  5. Do not overcook the fish--it's easy to do.
  6. While fillets are cooking, combine Miracle Whip, sweet relish, and lemon juice and stir until well blended, then serve with the fish.
  7. It's quick, easy, and doesn't require a lot of cleanup.
  8. Steamed carrots or broccoli and some form of potatoes go well with this.
