Cooking Directions

On a flat surface, place the Tilapia fillets. In a small bowl, add in the ginger, garlic, onion, chicken granulate, kosher salt, paprika, black pepper. Mix the dry spices well, then sprinkle onto the fish fillets. Massage the spices in gently onto both sides of the fish fillets. Cover and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes or overnight.

In a large skillet on medium heat, add in the olive oil. Once the skillet starts to heat up, add the fish fillets. Fry it for about 2 minutes or until it turns golden brown. Lower the heat to medium-low, turn the fillets over and cover for another 10 minutes.
Best served with a side of jasmine rice.
