fresh or thawed talapia filets
olive oil for frying
additional honey and lime zest mixed for drizzling
60 minutes before cooking season tilapia filets with salt and pepper then lay in a baking dish or into a large ziplock bag.
In a bowl combine olive oil, honey, lime juice, zest, crushed garlic and whisk until combined.
Pour over tilapia and let marinate for an hour. Add flour a bit more salt, pepper and lime zest to a bowl and set aside.
Heat a cast iron or a nonstick skillet over medium high heat and add olive oil.
Dredge each piece tilapia through the flour until you have a very light coating.
Make sure the pan is hot. Add tilapia to the oil and cook until flaky and crispy on each side about 3-4 minutes per side.
Remove tilapia from pan and let drain on a paper towel for a few minutes. Serve with an additional drizzle of lime and honey.
