4 different ways to cook tilapia

I had four pieces of tilapia in the fridge so I decided to cook them four different ways to see which would be the best.   I mean, why eat all four pieces the same way when you can mix it up right? 🙂 Here are the different ways I cooked the fish with a quick recap: 1. Panko crusted tilapia: breaded with flour, egg, panko & fried in a pan. Soft, flaky fish with a nice crisp. * check out this recipe: http://www.food.com/recipe/panko-tilapia-317044 2. Parmesan crusted tilapia: breaded with parmesan cheese, paprika, parsley & baked in the oven. Simple, cheesy & flavorful. * recipe from: http://www.rachaelraymag.com/recipes/rachael-ray-magazine-recipe-search/five-ingredient-recipes/parmesan-crusted-tilapia 3. Pan seared tilapia with capers: breaded with flour, pan seared with butter, wine, lemon, capers & parsley. Love the lemony, tangy sauce. * check out my own recipe: https://delishthoughts.com/2013/05/27/pan-seared-tilapia-with-a-lemon-caper-sauce/ * similar recipe but with garlic & shallots : http://www.simplyscratch.com/2013/08/pan-seared-tilapia-with-lemon-and-caper-sauce.html 4.

pan seared tilapia with a lemon caper sauce

It took me about 15 min to cook. The fish is soft & flaky with a slight crisp and the sauce is zesty & tangy. I like capers so I kept adding more. Enjoy!
