Pan Seared Fish Fillets

Tilapia pic1

Back in my old days I used to eat fish that was cooked with head, tail and bones. A whole fish cooked in Asian style. Not that I have anything against cooking and eating a whole fish, in fact I loved it. The truth is I can no longer handle the fish bones anymore. Thanks to fish fillets, I can still have fish on a regular basis.

Since we do not live near the ocean or lake, the fish option is pretty limited in the stores. Fresh seafood is only available in large restaurants. I keep frozen tilapia fillets in my freezer all the time. Needless to say, that’s what we are cooking today.

 

Pan Seared Fish Fillets

Rinse fish, pat dry, season with salt, black pepper, garlic salt and cayenne pepper if you like.

Add 1 to 2 tablespoons olive oil in a non-stick hot skillet over medium high heat. Gently place fillets in the hot pan. Cook until both sides are golden brown, about 3 to 5 minutes per side. Garnish with chopped green onions if you like. Serve with steamed rice and veggie.

This is our best everyday meal. I miss it so bad whenever we travel and away from home. As we always know simple food is the best.

  1. Very good dish. The trick here is to avoid cod being sold as tilapia. Tilapia has a firm texture; cod is very soft. Simple fried fish seasoned just right is my favorite basic meal.
