Cornmeal-Crusted Tilapia

Serve these golden fish fillets with a creamy mustard topping.
Combine 1 part mustard to 3 parts light or regular mayonnaise.

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/3 cup whole-wheat flour (white flour may be substituted)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 pounds tilapia fillets
2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

Combine the salt, paprika, cornmeal and flour on a plate. Place a
bowl with the lightly beaten egg next to the plate.

Dredge the fillets first in the egg, then the cornmeal mixture.

Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large, nonstick skillet over medium
high. Add the fish and cook until golden brown, about 4 minutes.
Remove from the pan. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan,
and return the fish fillets, cooked side facing up. Cook another 4
inutes, or until fish is cooked through. Makes 4 servings.
