These were SO good! And super easy! They were really crispy on the outside and tender on the inside! I will definitely be making these again!
Baked Fish and Chips
3 Tilapia fillets cut into strips
Flour Mixture: 1/2 c. Flour + salt and pepper + 1/2 tsp lemon pepper
Egg Wash: 1 egg + splash of water+ salt and pepper
Breading: 3/4 cup Rice Krispies (crushed) + 1/3 cup Italian Breadcrumbs + 1/2 tsp garlic powder + 1/4 tsp onion powder + 1/4 tsp paprika
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.
Mix all 3 of your mixtures into separate shallow bowls. Dip your fish strips into the flour mixture first, and shake off the excess. Next, dip the fish into the egg mixture. Lastly, dip the fish into the breading mixture.
Place fish onto an OVEN SAFE cooling rack that has been greased and placed on top of a baking sheet. this allows the hot air to circulate around the fish so you don't get a mushy bottom. Once you have repeated the process, lightly spray the fish with vegetable cooking spray (this helps it crisp up) and Bake for about 20-30 min. We like our fish overcooked, so I did more like 40 min! But our fish was on the thick side. Just keep checking it until it's done to your liking.
Oh and for the chips I just used walmart brand seasoned fries, they are a favorite at our house! But you can use this recipe for steak fries!
I made a quick Tarter sauce to dip the fish in, All you need is
1/2 c. miracle whip
1 TBS relish
1/4 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper
