Fish Recipes For Dinner

When Lent starts, the demand for fish recipes for dinner becomes a very large search term on Google. I love fish recipes and not just for Lent. I could eat a fish recipe for dinner anytime.

 

Easy Tilapia Recipe

I have a few fish recipes on Seduction In The Kitchen like Spinach and Feta Pinwheel Salmon {Stuffed Salmon Recipe} and Orange Roughy {Mandarine Napoleon Beurre Blanc}. One thing I do not have is an easy tilapia recipe. 

Finally, I can say I am giving my readers an easy tilapia recipe with this pan fried tilapia. It is so simple to make, you will love making this tilapia recipe for your family.

Pretzel Crust

I love a pretzel crust on chicken. What usually works for chicken can also work on fish. So making a pretzel crust as a batter for this tilapia dish was a great idea I felt. Plus what goes well with a pretzel crust? A honey mustard sauce!

 

Pan Fried Tilapia

I wanted this tilapia recipe to be easy, so instead of deep frying, I did this as a pan fried tilapia. Plus I think by pan frying the fish, the flavor would be better since the tilapia has the pretzel crust.

Honey Mustard Sauce

This pan fried tilapia needed a finishing sauce. Tartar sauce would be ok, but this tilapia recipe has a pretzel crust. A honey mustard sauce would be the best sauce to have with this easy tilapia recipe. The end result was an amazing fish dinner!

Pretzel Battered Tilapia With Honey Mustard

Pretzel Battered Tilapia With Honey Mustard is a pan fried tilapia. This easy tilapia recipe is wonderful if you need fish recipes for dinner! You'll love the pretzel crust and honey mustard sauce on this dish dinner.

Ingredients

  • 6 fl. oz. Canola Oil
  • 2/3 cup Tempura Mix
  • 4 (3oz. each) Tilapia Fillets
  • Dijon Honey Mustard Dressing
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons. Pretzel Breading

Instructions

    1. Pat tilapia dry.
    2. Season all over with the Old Bay Seasoning.
    3. Add canola oil to a medium non-stick pan and place over medium heat. Heat oil, 5 minutes.
    4. While oil heats, combine tempura mix, ¼ cup water, and a pinch of salt and pepper in a mixing bowl.
    5. Stir until a thin batter forms, like pancake batter. If too thick, add additional water, 1 Tbsp. at a time, until desired consistency is reached. 
    6. Working in batches, dip tilapia in batter, coating completely.
    7. Place on a plate and top with pretzel breading on one side, pressing gently to adhere.
    8. Fry 2 at a time, but carefully add tilapia to hot oil and fry until golden all over and fish reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-4 minutes per side.
    9. Gently transfer fish to towel-lined plate. Blot off the grease.
    10. Place the tilapia on plates and drizzle with Dijon honey mustard dressing. Serve it up and ENJOY!

Notes

Test oil temperature by adding a pinch of tempura batter to it. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. If it doesn't brown, increase heat.
