I've been jonesing for some crispy textured fish dish for sometime.This a perfect alternative to fish and chips!

  • 3 tilapia fillets
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 1/2 cup green onion
  • dash of sesame seed on each fillet
  • 1 tbsp ginger powder
  • 2 tbsp garlic infused flour


Garlic Infused flour - a great alternative to store bought breading, salt and other preservatives are omitted and what is left is just the intense, flavorful garlic to your dishes.

1 roasted whole garlic peeled and finely chopped
2 tablesppon of all purpose flour
1 small sealable jar

  • Roast the garlic at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes and let it cool
  • Chopped the garlic and set aside
  • Fill the small jar with chopped garlic on the botton and then add the flour on top
  • Create a layer of garlic and flour
  • Seal the jar for 24 hours and it should be ready for use the next day.
  • Store in the refridgerator for optimal self life.
  • Salt and Pepper the fillets
  • Dash some ginger powder and add in the green onions
  • Cover lightly with the garlic infused flour
  • Sprinkle generously with sesame seeds
  • Heat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit and bake for 25-30 minutes
  • The fillets are thin so it should cook fairly quickly

Serve on a bed of lettuce, topped with chopped cilantro and Enjoy!
