Pan Seared Tilapia Over Indian Corn Recipe

Searing is a cooking technique, wherein the surface of the food is cooked at a high temperature until a caramelized crust is formed. Searing is typically used in fish, meat or poultry. The caramelized crust gives the food a desirable flavor, texture, and appearance.

Ideas And Tips:

• Aside from tilapia fillets, you can also use salmon, trout, tuna, sea bass, snapper or halibut.

• You can add carrots, zucchini or peas to the veggie mixture.

• To get a perfectly pan-seared fish, you have to pat the fish dry with a paper towel first before seasoning it. You must also make sure that the pan is hot before putting the fish in. Finally, just flip the fish – only once. Refrain from moving or turning the fish until the desired browning is achieved. A good indication that the fish is ready to be flipped, is when the sides of the fish turn opaque.
