Tilapia is one of the mildest fish you can put on your dinner plate. This makes it a delicious fish option even for those kids (and adults) who don’t like the typical taste fish and seafood has.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Serves: 4

Ingredients:

4 (4 ounce) tilapia fillets
1/2 cup flour
1 tablespoon olive oil and/or a pat of butter (for the pan)
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

1. Rinse the tilapia fillets in cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
2. Season both sides of each fillet with salt and pepper.
3. Place the flour in a shallow dish; press each fillet into the flour to coat both sides and shake off the excess flour into the sink or a trash can.
4. In a skillet, heat the olive oil on medium-high heat. You may add the butter at this point as well, stirring it into the oil.
5. Cook the fillets in the skillet until they flake easily with a fork or about 4 minutes on each side.
