Deliciousness Abounds. Tilapia + Salad

A simple & quick recipe for Tilapia and Arugula.

Necessary Ingredients:

For the fish itself:

  • 4 Filets of Tilapia (~1.5 pounds total)
  • 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
  • 2/3 Cup Flour
  • 1/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese (grated)
  • 1 Tsp Dried Parsley
  • 1 Tsp Dried Oregano
  • Garlic Salt
  • Pepper

For the salad:

  • 6 Cups of Arugula (~1 bag of Dole Arugula)
  • 3 Tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 Tsp Garlic Salt
  • 3 Tbsp of Parmesan Cheese


For the salad:

  1. Mix Lemon Juice, Olive Oil, and Garlic Salt until it is a uniform mixture.
  2. Take the mixture and pour it gently over the arugula.
  3. Mix with your hands until the arugula is coated with the dressing.
  4. Pour on half of Parmesan Cheese.  Mix it in.
  5. Pour on the other half of the Parmesan Cheese.  Mix it in also.  This ensures an even sprinkling. 🙂

For the fish:

  1. Pat the Tilapia dry with paper towels.
  2. Mix the flour, Parmesan cheese, oregano, and parsley.
  3. Season the tilapia lightly with Garlic Salt & Pepper.
  4. Dredge the tilapia in the flour mixture.
  5. Heat the olive oil in a non-stick skillet until it sizzles when you drop water into it.
  6. Place the tilapia in the skillet and cook on first side for 2.5-3 minutes (until the edges start to brown, that side will be browned and crispy!)
  7. Flip the tilapia and cook on the other side for 2.5-3 minutes (again until the edges start to brown, so both sides will be browned and crispy!)
  8. Place the tilapia on a paper towel and let it cool off for a minute or two before placing the fish on top of the salad.
