I love to make fish, and have been doing for years but Tilapia fillets get broken while frying, how can I overcome that.

Two things,
Coat the fish with flour and have a hot nonstick frying pan.
Also if it is not skinned, place that side down on the frying pan.

Hello Faridabai: In USA we get the Farm Raised Tilapia from China and it just is not good, try Halibut or Cod as they are Firm fish and not as flakky..n Good luck.Fis and Black Pepper Potatoes go together So Good... Mome Paani Achhivio, Yummy..

I bet a Firm Fish like Cod or Halibut will work better that Tilapia as the Tilapia we get in USA is that farm raised from China and just not as good as the Uganda one..But the Black Pepper Bateta will go good with any thing even BBQ Chicken or Mishkaki...

Latif, you are right, the tilapia we get here are nothing like the ones we got in East Africa
