  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/2 cup crushed Ritz crackers (about 10 crackers)
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tilapia fillets (5 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Lemon wedges


  1. Place flour and egg in separate shallow bowls. In another shallow bowl, combine the crackers, cheese and salt. Dip fillets in the flour, then egg, then cracker mixture; turn until coated.
  2. In a large cast-iron or other heavy skillet, cook fillets in oil over medium heat until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork. Serve with lemon wedges.
