Tilapia Sandwiches

Tilapia is a very healthy and easily available fish. I don’t like its skin and hence prefer to get it filleted. This boneless pieces are just the perfect option for making Sandwiches, Shawarma and Salads.

  • Tilapia, boneless and skinless.
  • Cumin Powder.
  • Coriander Powder.
  • Paprika Powder.
  • Turmeric Powder.
  • Salt.

Combine the powders and taste it to adjust the salt and spice. Coat the fish with this “spice mix” and marinate it for a couple of hours in the fridge.

Get get the fish out just 10 minutes before you plan to cook it.

Pan fry on medium heat in any neutral oil. Take care to not use very high heat. We want the spice rub to lightly brown and not burn while the fish is getting cooked. If in doubt, simply break open one of the pieces to see if its cooked thru.

Serve with a dash of lime and some raw onions, tomatoes etc on a flat bread.
