Potato Flake Breaded Tilapia Recipe

Let's just say, I am an amateur when it comes to frying food! I love fried food, but it's probably a good thing I don't do much of it! This is a great recipe for people like me, who don't have much experience in the frying department! Mashed potato flakes are an amazing breading and this recipe turned out fabulous! 

You need:
2 cups dry potato flakes
1 cup flour
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon seasoning salt
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons paprika
2 eggs
8 Tilapia fillets
Oil (for frying)

I had a surprise when I cracked my egg. A double yolk from supermarket eggs?? I think it's a first for me! I'm used to them only being in farm fresh!
Step 1: Heat a deep fryer to 350 degrees. (I used a frying pan on medium-high heat for the same amount of cooking time) In a small bowl beat together 2 eggs. In a pie plate combine potato flakes, flour, garlic powder, seasoning salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Mix well.
Step 2: Dip fillets into egg mixture and then roll in the potato mixture until evenly coated.
Step 3: Fry fish fillets in the deep fryer (in batches if necessary) for 5 minutes or until the fish flakes apart easily and is golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
Yield: (4 Servings)
