Tortilla Chip Crusted Tilapia with Sriracha Lime Mayo


Like many of you I’ve been using this time to clean everything, including my pantry. It’s been great to see what I have on-hand and figure out different ways to use it. I found a bag of tortilla chips that was mostly crushed and figured those chips would make a perfect coating for the tilapia I had in the freezer. If you don’t have tilapia, any flaky whitefish will work (or salmon).

1. Preheat oven to 400. Line a baking sheet with silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

2. Place chips, jalapeno, cilantro, garlic powder and chili powder in a food processor and pulse until crumbly.

3. Place beaten egg and chip mixture onto two plates. Dip the fish in egg, then coat with chip crumbs and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, combine sriracha lime mayo ingredients in a small bowl.

5. Once out of the oven, squeeze fresh lime juice over the fish. Place fish on plates and serve sriracha lime mayo on the side for dipping.
