i’ve never made this, but i’m trying it tonight. i was going to make this, but someone drank all the oj this morning!  besides, i’m always up for an excuse to put salsa on anything and everything.

Cornmeal-Crusted Tilapia with Salsa

4 Tilapia filets
1/3 c yellow cornmeal
2 tsp paprika
3 tbsp olive oil, salt
½ c Salsa
In a shallow plate or bowl, combine cornmeal and paprika; season with salt and pepper. Dredge each piece in cornmeal mixture, patting on to coat completely.
In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tbsp oil over med-high. Cook without crowding until golden brown and firm, about 2 min per side for thin pieces and 4 min for thick ones. Transfer to a plate. Serve with salsa.

made it! it was super yummy, although i will just bake it next time. the pan-frying wasn’t worth the extra oil.
