Golden Fried Fish

Yield: 8 fillets
  • 1 c. cornmeal
  • 1 1/4 tsp. garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp. red pepper (cayenne)
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 c. milk
  • 8 tilapia fillets
  • vegetable oil or butter
  1. Combine first 4 ingredients in a shallow dish; set aside. Whisk together egg white and milk in another shallow dish. Dip fillets in egg mixture, then dredge in cornmeal mixture.
  2. Fry fish in oil 1/4" deep. Fry 4 minutes on each side or until golden, then drain on paper towels.
Don't leave out the cayenne pepper for fear of it being too spicy; it adds just the right touch!
