Flaky Fish (Pan Fried Tilapia)

October has been a busy month with back to back events, celebrations, birthday parties, trip to States, Festivals, relatives, Kids, Holidays Hmmm! Though I have no time to breathe, I have missed blogging and waiting for this month to relax a bit.

As I am not fond of buying or cooking fish, Never tried that many Fish Dishes after marriage. As Kids will change your whole world, cause of my kids, I have dared to start shopping (at Sprouts) and cooking Tilapia fish to start with. And after seeing how much easy to buy the processed fish fillets and how easily fish gets cooked compared to other meat, and learning how healthy it is, I have gotten into cooking Fish, and these days after my shopping at Sprouts, this 'Flaky Fish on Wednesdays' became weekly routine for my fish lover trio's dinner plate at home.

Flaky Fish
 As I am missing Tilapia here in India, (I have not explored this yet in the BLR markets), Today I am featuring this easy and simple Pan Fried Tilapia recipe also known as "Flaky Fish" in my kitchen, while recollecting the memories of Wednesday Dinner Nights.

Tilapia Fish Fillet - 2 ( medium)
salt - 1 tsp
black pepper - 1/2 tsp
turmeric - 1/4 tsp
paprika - 1 tsp
garlic ( grated) - 1 tsp
oil - 1 Tbsp

for garnish:
lime wedges - 2 or 3
onion rings (sliced) - 7

1. Mix the salt, black pepper, turmeric, paprika and grated garlic in a small bowl
2. make small slit to the Fish fillet, and rub the spice mix on two sides thoroughly.
3. Close with lid and leave it aside for 30 min.
4. Heat the non stick pan and add Oil.
5. Once the Oil is hot, place the fillet in the pan. cook it on medium heat for 5 min, turn it over and cook for another 5 min
6. Once you notice the edges and the bottom gets browned and fish becomes very soft and flaky. then it's the indication that it is well cooked and done.
7. Turn off the heat, Transfer it to the plate and let it cool for a bit sprinkle lime juice and serve warm with the side of onion rings and lime wedges.
