    Cook Tilapia

    "Line a plate with a paper towel. Test oil temperature by adding a pinch of tempura batter to it. It should sizzle gently. If it browns immediately, turn heat down and let oil cool. If it doesn't brown, increase heat. Season tilapia with taco seasoning. Lay tilapia pieces away from you in hot oil and flip every 3-5 minutes until golden brown and tilapia reaches a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 3-5 minutes. Transfer fish to towel-lined plate. Rest at least 5 minutes."
