Breaded Soy Tilapia

    25 minutes

    This is an incredibly simple recipe but one of my kids' favourites. Add Parmesan cheese to breadcrumb mix for something a little different.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 egg
    • 1/4 cup (65ml) soy sauce
    • 750g tilapia fillets, cut into 5cm pieces
    • 1/4 cup (30g) plain flour
    • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Beat the egg and soy sauce together in a bowl.
    2. Gently press the tilapia pieces into the flour to coat; shake off the excess flour. Dip each flour-coated piece into the beaten egg mixture and then press into bread crumbs. Gently toss between your hands so any bread crumbs that haven't stuck can fall away. Place the breaded tilapia onto a plate while breading the rest; do not stack.
    3. Heat the vegetable oil in a frypan over medium-high heat. Cook the breaded tilapia in the vegetable oil until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side.

    Excellent fish, crusty and not at all greasy! I added parmesan cheese to the bread crumbs, and cooked in 1/2 sesame oil and 1/2 vegetable oil. I'll definitely make this again.  -  11 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    is was so quick and easy to make and very tasty! I loved the light crispy coating. It was not greasy at all. I didn't even have soy sauce and it was still delicious. I added some garlic powder, Lawry's Seasoned Salt and some pepper. I was in such a hurry to make dinner I didn't read where it said to cut the tilapia into 2-inch pieces. I just heated the oil and dipped the whole fillets in flour, egg and the bread crumbs. I just added a few extra minutes until the fish flaked easily with a fork. Next time I will try with the soy sauce, but I loved this without it. Thanks for a delicious and easy recipe!  -  05 Jan 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    While this was on overall good dish, I was expecting to taste more of the soy. I really did not taste the soy that much. I made some salad dressing with soy and toasted sesame seed oil and drizzled over the fish. Next time I make this I will add a bit of sesame seed oil into the soy / egg mixture for a bit more of a kick. Good dish though. It made for a nice lunch today.  -  21 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
