Chef Chuck's Fried Lemon Tilapia

Fritto Limone Tilapia

Hello my friends, I am back!!  My motto is family, food and friends and  I have been very
busy taking care of my family. Feels good to be back.

Fried Lemon Tilapia

A light and satisfying dish from the beautiful, Amalfi Coast in Italy, where my family is deeply rooted. You can use Tilapia or any white fillet for this recipe.  I soaked the fish in whole milk, then floured and fried in butter, whats not to love!  I served the fish with garlic sauteed brussel sprouts and thinly sliced marinated onions and tomatoes.  The lemons "sfusato" from that area are amazing, so after frying squeeze lemon juice on top of fish and sprinkle fresh chopped parsley.

2 fillets of Tilapia
milk
flour
salt and pepper
4 tablespoons butter
2 lemons
parsley

Wash and place fish in a shallow dish, cover with whole milk  for 30 minutes.  Drench in seasoned flour (salt and pepper) heat butter and fry on each side till golden brown.  On serving platter squeeze lemon juice over fish and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
