Simple Ranch Breaded Fish Fillets

My husband and I recently purchased some tilapia fillets that we were planning on having for dinner tonight. I quick ran upstairs to find a breading recipe and stumbled across this one on

Conveniently I had the Italian bread crumbs AND the dried ranch dressing this was perfect for us. So good!

My only suggestion would be to watch them carefully in the skillet. It went much faster than the 5 minutes the recipe calls for.

Simple Ranch Breaded Fish Fillets

3/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 (1 ounce) package dry Ranch-style dressing mix
2 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 pound tilapia fillets
2 teaspoons butter

Place the bread crumbs in a bowl. In a shallow dish, mix the dressing mix and oil to form a paste. Coat the tilapia fillets with the paste, then dredge in the bread crumbs to lightly coat.

Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Place the fillets in the skillet, and cook 5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and easily flaked with a fork.
