These perfect, crispy and delicious little fish bites, are a great alternative to your everyday fish sticks. What’s most important is that they are 100% homemade.
This is a different alternative to the everyday #WeekdaySupper and of course is delicious, fresh and I know your kids are going to love it.
The sauce is a simple chile chipotle mayonnaise, and of course is a little spicy. But oh my, it is so delicious to use as a dip. It is perfect to put on the kiddos lunch box, take to work or just have it as an afternoon snack.
I hope you like them and enjoy!
- 1 pound of Tilapia filets cut in chunks
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup breadcrumbs
- 4 eggs
- Salt and pepper
- Enough Oil to fry the fish
- FOR THE MAYONNAISE
- 1 cup of mayonnaise
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup cilantro finely chopped
- 1 Chipotle pepper in adobo
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- zest of 1/2 lemon
- salt, to taste
Cut the tilapia filets in steak fries like, you know like the potato.
In a bowl or container beat the eggs with salt and pepper and in another container mix flour, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper. And don’t forget to start heating the oil in a heavy bottom pot, at 325 degrees F.
Now let start doing the coating, is super easy just like a 1,2,3, method. 1 Fish in flour mixture. 2 Fish in egg. 3 Fish in flour mixture again, and repeat one more time.
Once the two coating of breading are ready, let start frying this fish, add some pieces not all the pieces and fry until golden brown, it takes about 5 minutes total. Don’t place to much fish to the oil otherwise it will lower the temperature and it will not cook the fish properly.
For the Chipotle Mayonnaise, just mix in a bowl all the ingredients, I like little pieces of chipotle pepper, that is why for this mayonnaise in particular I don’t like to use the food processor.
