Breaded fried fish with mushrooms – gluten free

20120330-195442.jpg

I need to go grocery shopping. In a bad bad way. Tonight, I just experimented a bit with what I had on hand and created this recipe. Nothing sparks creativity like necessity, right?

Using small tilapia filets dipped in melted butter, breaded with gluten free bread crumbs and seasonings, and topped with sautéed chopped mushrooms, this was relatively easy to throw together for dinner tonight. It was also delicious, so I am sharing.

*NOTE: if you don’t like tilapia, sub another fish. If you don’t like fish, try thinly pounded chicken cutlets.

Fish, seasonings and GF bread crumbs, mushrooms with tomato and cheese, and the breaded fish.

Combine seasonings with GF bread crumbs. Dip the filets in the melted butter, and then coat them with the seasoned bread crumb mix. In a heavy-bottomed skillet, heat two tablespoons of oil over medium-high heat. When hot, gently place fish in the skillet. Fry for a few minutes and then carefully flip filets over to cook for a few more minutes on the other side. The coating should nicely brown up.

Meanwhile, over medium heat in another skillet add chopped mushrooms, chopped tomato, and butter. Cook, stirring occasionally.
Remove fish from pan and let rest on a plate. Add two cloves of minced garlic to the mushrooms, along with a pinch of salt. Cook for a few minutes, until the garlic is nice and fragrant. Spoon the mushroom mixture atop the fish, and then add some of the shredded cheese. Serve with sides of your choice. I served it with some baked spaghetti squash and sauce.

The ingredients and measurements are as follows:

4 small tilapia filets
6 T + 2 T butter (6 for the dip, 2 for the mushrooms)
1 C gluten free bread crumbs
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp smoked paprika
4 oz button mushrooms, chopped
1 Roma tomato, chopped and seeded
2 garlic cloves, minced
About 1/2 C white cheddar (or cheese of your choice), shredded

Enjoy!
