Pan Fried Tilapia with Dill Sauce

  • Fish... catfish, brim, etc (This time I used Tilapia)
  • 1/4 cup Oil for frying
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 1 cup flour
Preheat oil in a shallow frying pan on medium-high heat. Mix flour and seasonings in a plastic container with lid (big enough to fit fish inside). Place fish in one at a time and carefully shake. Remove fish and fry until golden brown. It only takes a couple of minutes per side. Serve with Dill Sauce or Cocktail Sauce. I love both!

**One secret is for the pan and oil to be hot. This way the flour stays on the fish and it fries crisp rather than boiling in the oil and becoming soggy.

Dill Dressing

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tbsp dried dill weed
1 tsp lemon juice
1/3 cup milk
1/4 tsp garlic juice*
Kosher salt, to taste
Cracked black pepper, to taste

Combine ingredients. Chill for 1 to 2 hours.

*You can substitute a little garlic powder. I just prefer not to have chunks and bits of raw garlic in the dressing.

Cocktail Sauce

1 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (about 1 small lemon)
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
dash Worcestershire sauce
few drops hot sauce
salt to taste

Combine and blend all ingredients well.

I rounded out the meal with a Caesar Salad!
