Peppery "Popcorn" Fish

This was really just fooling around in the kitchen trying to find a way to "bread" fish since I was out of breadcrumbs.

I love a peppery breaded fish, so it may be necessary to slightly decrease the amount of pepper the recipe calls for.

I was kind of surprised that it browned so nicely!

Ingredients

2
pieces tilapia (or other white fish)
1 Tbsp
lemon juice
1 c
non-buttered or salted popcorn, popped
1/4 tsp
salt
1 tsp
ground black pepper
dash(es)
paprika
1/4 tsp
garlic powder
1/4 tsp
italian seasoning

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a baking dish.

Pour the lemon juice over the fish and set aside.
2
In a food processor (I used my magic bullet) pulse the popped popcorn until it resembles grated Parmesan cheese.

Add the salt, pepper, garlic, paprika and Italian seasonings and pulse a few more times to well mix.

Pour the popcorn mixture into a mixing bowl or ziplock bag.
3
Blot the fish just dry enough so it isn't dripping and toss/shake so it is well coated on all sides.

Place in prepared baking dish. Give a very quick spray of PAM over each and sprinkle a bit more of the popcorn mixture on top.
4
Bake for about 10-15 minutes, until fish is done. Should look lightly browned.
