Crunchy Lemon Pepper Tilapia

I don't have a recipe for this or really very many shots, but I'm trying to keep my posting momentum going so I figured I'd share. Plus I got a couple decent pics and it tasted awesome. I whipped it up on the spur of the moment because I was trying to figure out what to do with this tiny egg. It was in a half dozen fresh farm eggs my brother gave me but it was too little for baking or scrambling or anything. So I breaded fish with it. The breading was just fresh crumbs, dry lemon peel, lots cracked black pepper and some salt. Basic flour, egg, crumbs deal, then I let it chill in the fridge for about 20 minutes or so. I've found that really helps it keep the coating. But then just a little oil in a hot anodized aluminum pan (perfect for this, I love those pans), fry, flip and lunch. A little homemade tartar sauce on the side and I was a happy camper. The only thing I was missing was some kind of side dish, maybe a salad of some stripe. Ah well, next time.

Speaking of upcoming times, I have a whole bunch of cool stuff to post about once I get my long post writing mojo up and running. My brother recently made eclairs, I've got a killer meatloaf and some mini shepherds pies to name a few. Maybe now that the heat is lessening I'll be less inclined to hibernate. Heh.

Looks yummy--too bad I don't like fish! Might like yours, tho.

Hi Bob,

Fish looks yummy, I make tilapia this same way, but I bake in oven using butter non0stick spray. It gets just as crispy as pan frying.

How do you make your tartar sauce?

@Dee: This was just some mayo and relish and black pepper. I'm working on an actual recipe, but I still have some kinks in it.
