Crispy Fish with Seasoned Tater Tots


  • Prep Time : 10 min
  • Cook Time : 30 min
  • Ready Time : 40 min


4 Servings


    For Tater Tots:

    • 1 teaspoon celery salt
    • ½ teaspoon dry mustard
    • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • ½ teaspoon paprika
    • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
    • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1 bag frozen tater tots (1-pound bag)

    For Crispy Fish:

    • ¼ cup cornmeal
    • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
    • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
    • ½ teaspoon paprika
    • pinch cayenne pepper
    • 1 to 2 cups canola oil
    • 1½ pound tilapia fillets, cut into 2-inch strips


    Combine celery salt, dry mustard, pepper, paprika, nutmeg and ginger.  Toss tater tots with seasoning to coat and bake according to package directions.


    Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, mix together cornmeal, flour, salt, paprika and cayenne. Heat oil in a large sauté pan over medium high heat. Have a sheet pan or plate lined with paper towels ready for draining. Dredge several strips of fish in the cornmeal mixture and carefully place in hot oil. Fry for 5 to 8 minutes total depending on thickness of fish, turning often, until golden and crispy. Transfer to paper towel lined pan and continue to dredge and fry remaining fish in batches.


    Serve warm with tater tots.
