Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

So easy. So delicious. It even earned that elusive 5th Marks! That's right ladies and gentlemen, my three year old ate it!!!

Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

Breading- 2 1/2 cups of italian bread crumbs
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 tsp pepper
1 1/2 tsp garlic salt (or to taste)

5 or 6 tilapia fillets
olive oil (can be substituted with veg. oil etc.)
4 eggs beaten

Mix the breading ingredients in a dish. In seperate bowl beat eggs. Warm pan on stove with olive oil. Pat dry the fillets and then coat in eggs. Coat with breadcrumbs and then fry in pan about 4 minutes on each side. Tilapia gets a nice white color when it is done and flakes easily with a fork. Breading will be golden brown. If you want to plan ahead, bread the fillets early and put in the fridge. When you are coating anything like chicken or fish or pork chops, it fries easier and holds its breadcrumb better if it has been chilled. Its as easy as that. I made it with fresh mashed potatoes and frozen peas. LOVED IT!
