  • 2 pieces tilapia cleaned and scales removed
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup cooking oil


  • Rub salt all over the fish including the insides.
  • Heat oil in a wide frying pan
  • When the oil is hot, put-in the tilapia. Cover the frying pan, but make sure to open it a little so that steam can come out. Fry each side in medium heat for about 6 to 10 minutes. Note: I usually wait until I don’t hear any sound. This means that the liquid is gone and the fish is crisp.
  • Remove from the pan and arrange in a serving plate.
  • Serve with your favorite condiments and side dish.
  • Share and enjoy!
