Recipe Ingredients for Tilapia Fingers with Lemon Garlic Mayo

2 pound Tilapia Fillets
1 cup All Purpose Flour
3 Eggs, beaten
2 cups Panko
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
2 tbsp Olive Oil
1 cup Mayonnaise
1 Garlic Clove, minced
2 tbsp Lemon Juice
1/8 tsp Salt
1/8 tsp Pepper

Recipe Directions for Tilapia Fingers with Lemon Garlic Mayo

  1. Cut the tilapia into "fingers" by first cutting the fillets in half. Leave the thin sides long, then cut the thicker sides in half on a diagonal.

  2. Set up three large, shallow bowls in an assembly line. Put flour in the first bowl, beaten eggs in the second, and Panko in the third.

  3. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  4. Dredge the fish fingers in flour mixture, shaking excess into bowl so just a light coating remains. Dip them in the eggs and turn to coat evenly. Then dredge in Panko, turning several times to coat evenly.

  5. Set breaded tilapia fingers on baking sheet and season with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate until ready to cook.

  6. Line a plate with 3 paper towels and set by the stove.

  7. Heat olive oil in a large, non-stick sauté pan over medium heat.

  8. When pan is hot, place first batch of tilapia fingers in pan (do not crowd) and cook until first side is golden brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until done, about 2 minutes more.

  9. Transfer fish fingers to the plate with paper towels and let sit for a minute to drain any excess oil.

  10. Remove any brown bits out of pan. Add more olive oil if necessary and continue to cook in batches until done.

  11. Season cooked tilapia fingers with more salt if desired.

  12. For the lemon garlic mayonnaise, mix mayonnaise, garlic, and lemon juice in a small bowl.

  13. Add salt and pepper to taste.

  14. Stir well.
