Tortilla Crusted Tilapia with Jalapeño Tartar Sauce


Tilapia is known to be bland, writing about it is torture. I’m trying to find a story to entertain you with but I don’t have one and I can’t pretend to care anymore – I have shit to do. This recipe on the other hand is the antithesis of boring and recommend it to any lover of fish and a little heat.

In a food processor combine chips and spices. Heat vegetable oil in a pan and dredge your fish in flour, egg and tortilla coating. Cook in oil on medium heat 3 – 4 minutes per side. Combine ingredients to make the jalapeño tartar sauce and refrigerate for one hour before serving. Easy.
