Cornmeal-Crusted Tilapia Fish Fingers Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 4 small tilapia (or any firm white-fleshed fish) fillets
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • Salt and freshly grated black pepper to taste
  • 3/4 to 1 cup oil for frying
How to cook Cornmeal-Crusted Tilapia Fish Fingers:
  • Rinse the fish under running cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
  • Cut the fillet into stripes (“fingers”) about 1/2 inch wide and 2 1/2 inches long.
  • In a large bowl, lightly beat egg whites with salt and pepper.
  • Add the fish fingers, toss to coat, and set aside for 15 minutes.
  • In large dinner plate, combine cornmeal and flour; season with salt and pepper.
  • Roll the fish fingers in the breading mixture.
  • In a large frying pan, heat oil over medium-high. Working in batches, cook fish until golden brown and opaque throughout, 4 to 5 minutes, turning once (if fish is browning too quickly, reduce heat).
  • Remove the fish from the pan and place on paper towels to absorb excess fat.
  • Serve the Tilapia Fish Fingers immediately with ketchup or your favorite dipping sauce on a side and your choice of fresh vegetables or salad.
  •     Enjoy!
