Cajun Pan Fried Tilapia
(originally from Southern Living Magazine)
5-6 Tilapia fillets (or flounder - I used flounder tonight, but usually use tilapia)
1 1/2 teaspoons of Cajun seasoning (I used Emeril's Bayou Blast)
3 Tablespoons of Wegman's Pan Searing Flour
3 Tablespoons of cornmeal
1 Tbsp of butter, 1 Tbsp of olive oil
Rinse and pat fillets to just moist. Mix cornmeal, flour, and spice in a 9 inch pie plate. Dredge fillets in flour mixture. Heat butter and oil in a large non stick skillet (heat 350 degrees) and fry a few minutes per side, turning once. Squeeze with fresh lemon generously before serving. I served mine with red beans and rice, steamed asparagus topped with bread crumbs and pecorino romano cheese, and a salad. Even David likes this fish!
