Serving Size: 1 sandwich

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons oil (canola or vegetable)
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 4 frozen filets (about 3 ounces each) of white fish (tilapia), thawed
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • Optional toppings: sliced onions and tomatoes, leaf lettuce, light ranch dressing or tartar sauce

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat until hot. Spread the cornmeal on a plate and press the fish into the cornmeal to coat on all sides.
  2. Fry the fish in the hot oil until the cornmeal is lightly browned. This will take about 2–3 minutes on each side. Fish is done when the internal temperature reaches 145˚F or it flakes easily with a fork.
  3. Move the fish from the frying pan to a plate lined with paper towels. Pat the fish dry with more paper towels.
  4. Assemble sandwiches with your favorite toppings.

Tips

Thaw fish in the refrigerator overnight.

For more flavor, mix 1 teaspoon seasoning with cornmeal before coating fish. Seasoning might be lemon pepper, pepper, garlic powder, or chili powder.

Make homemade tartar sauce. Stir light mayo or salad dressing with pickle relish.
