Homemade fish fingers
Delicious! Surprisingly easy to make. I added some turmeric to the breadcrumbs to give a golden finish.

• 3 tilapia fillets
• 2 large eggs, beaten
• ¼ cup milk
• 1½ cups bread crumbs
• ½ tsp. salt
• ½ tsp. black pepper
• 1 tsp garlic powder
• ³/₄ tsp. onion powder
• 1/2 tsp. paprika
• ¼ cup flour
• cooking oil, for frying

Season the tilapia fillets with salt and pepper, cut into strips and set aside while setting up the batter.

Add flour to a small bowl and set aside.

In a medium size bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, garlic powder, onion powder and paprika. Mix well.

In a third bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk.

Dip the fish strips into the flour, then the egg mixture and finally the breadcrumbs mixture. Repeat with the remaining fish.

Heat a large frying pan with cooking oil over medium heat. Once hot, fry the fish strips in batches for about 3 - 5 minutes. Repeat until done with the remaining batches.

Once done, set the fish on a bowl lined with paper towels to drain excess oil. Serve hot with lime wedges.

Tip: Place the fish on a sheet pan in the oven at 200 degrees to keep it hot while the remaining fish cooks.
