1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
4 (6-oz.) tilapia filets
Freshly ground black pepper
2 Tbsp. canola or vegetable oil, divided
2 Tbsp. cilantro leaves, for garnish
Lime wedges, for serving
* In a large bowl, whisk together flour, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, and cumin. Whisk to combine.
* Season tilapia filets generously with salt and pepper, then dip each in flour mixture, shaking off any excess flour. Place on a clean plate or baking sheet.
* In a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Add 2 filets and cook 3 to 4 minutes per side, until crust is golden and fish flakes easily with a fork. Repeat with remaining filets.
Serve immediately with cilantro and lime wedges. (Lena Abraham)
