Many, many time I have taken a fish filet, seasoned it and then started it on the stove top for 2 to 3 minutes, remove, squeeze lemon, thyme, and oil or butter and place under a broiler to finish. A bit meticulous to use both stove top and pre-heated broiler, but wow it is amazing and so easy, especially if you’re hustling to make sides on time. If you’ve got serving cast iron skillets with wood holders (start on stove top and finish in oven), then this method is simply divine.

My favorite way to make tilapia is this:

1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon each salt, pepper, dried basil
1 tbsp. oil
1 tbsp. butter
2-3 tilapia fillets
1 lemon, cut into wedges

Mix flour and seasonings in a shallow plate or bowl. Heat oil and butter in a skillet. Dredge the fillets in the seasoned flour and put in heated skillet. Cook for about 3 minutes or till lightly browned, then turn fillets over and cook another 2-3 minutes, till fish is done. Put on heated serving plates or a platter and sprinkle with lemon. Serve with remaining lemon wedges.

Breaded and fried Tilapia also makes a great fish sandwich.

Tilapia is good to use for most any recipe for a light, white fish. It takes well to blackening too.

Another simple way I like to prepare tilapia is to lightly saute a couple of tablespoons of fresh chopped garlic in olive oil, but use care not to over cook the garlic (if it browns it will be bitter). Then remove the garlic from the oil, and cook the fish in the same oil, now flavored with the garlic, with just a little salt and pepper to taste. When the fish is done, serve with the cooked garlic spooned over the fillets, and maybe garnish with some chopped fresh parsley. Good stuff.

I would pan-fry them with a light coating such as Zatarain's fish fry mix, or your own mix of cornmeal, flour, salt & pepper and spices or your choice. A little Cajun seasoning is nice.
