Piccata Breaded with Lemon Infused Olive Oil Recipe
-2 tilapia filets
-2 tablespoons of Sonoma Farm lemon infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil
-½ cup of plain bread crumbs
-1 tablespoon of fresh thyme, stems removed
-1/2 tablespoon of garlic powder
-Kosher salt to taste
-Fresh ground pepper taste
-½ cup of Egg Beaters or 2 large eggs beaten
Mix bread crumb, thyme, garlic powder salt and pepper in a large shallow dish. Add eggbeaters or beaten eggs to a separate large shallow dish. Dip tilapia into the egg mixture, then into dry mixture and place in a large preheated skilled with lemon infused olive oil over medium high heat. Sear on first side until brown turn and cook on the second side until brown. This takes about 5 minutes total cooking time, because the fish is thin.
An easy weeknight meal to mix things up a little. I used nice, thick tilapia fillets and they turned out beautifully. Served with roasted spaghetti squash and a salad and it was perfect!
