“I developed this recipe from ideas I found on a website about Honduras. It takes the "bland" out of tilapia, which is nice for a change.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl, mix together all dry spices.
  2. Sprinkle seasonings evenly over both sides of tilapia fillets (this can be done hours before you are ready to cook the fillets).
  3. In a large skillet, heat olive oil and sauté garlic and onions until just tender.
  4. In a shallow bowl, whisk eggs well.
  5. In another shallow bowl, season the flour (or bread crumbs) to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Working with only a few pieces at a time, dip seasoned fillets in flour, then in beaten eggs, then again in flour.
  7. Sauté the fillets in the seasoned oil for 2 minutes on each side, adding more oil if needed.
  8. Remove to a plate to keep warm and repeat the process until all fillets are cooked.
  9. Serve immediately.
