Parmesan Encrusted Fish

I have not done this recipe in ages and I just remembered it as I wanted to have a salad tonight but wanted some fish to go with it. It is like a common theme here at Food Devil but this is remarkably easy. Your fish is first coated in white flour and then egg white 7 finally grated parmesan cheese. Then it is shallow fried in hot oil for about 2/3 minutes each side. This recipe also works great with chicken breast/slices courgette/eggplant

Serves 2

2 pieces of Tilapia fish
1 egg
40g fresh Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp white flour
Sprinkle of paprika
Sunflower oil

Cooking utensils
Frying pan
2 shallow plates
Kitchen paper

-         Wash fish and pad dry with kitchen paper
-         Grate your cheese onto one of your plates
-         Separate your egg so that only egg white remains on the plate
-         Mix the salt/pepper & paprika with your flour

-         Pour aprox a finger tip of oil into your frying pan and turn heat onto medium/high
-         First coat your fish in the white flour, then the egg white & finally the parmesan cheese


-         To test if the oil is hot enough throw in a piece of white bread. If it sizzles & turns crispy the oil is hot enough

-       Carefully place your prepared fish into the oil and turn after 30 seconds to ensure that the cheese will hold to the fish. Repeat on the other side and cook finally for 1 minute each side. 
-        Remove and place on Kitchen paper to remove excess oil

-         Serve immediately, tonight I had it with a nice green salad
