  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tilapia fillets (4 ounces each)
  • Olive oil-flavored cooking spray
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

Directions

Place milk in a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Dip fish in milk, then coat with flour mixture.
