Beer-Battered Tilapia with Mango Salsa

From: EatingWell

Lovers of fried fish get the taste without all the calories in this recipe. Seasoned whole-wheat flour improves the usual fish-and-chips batter. A good pilsner or lager makes this dish taste best-and since you only need 1/2 cup, there's some left over for the cook to enjoy.

 by 1 person
3 tablespoons  whole-wheat flour
2 tablespoons  all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon  ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon  salt, or to taste
1/8-1/4 teaspoon  cayenne pepper
1/2 cup  beer
1 pound  tilapia fillets, (about 3), cut in half lengthwise
4 teaspoons  canola oil, divided
  Mango Salsa, (recipe follows)
1. Combine whole-wheat flour, all-purpose flour, cumin, salt and cayenne in a medium bowl. Whisk in beer to create a batter.
2. Coat half the tilapia pieces in the batter. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Letting excess batter drip back into the bowl, add the fish to the pan; cook until crispy and golden, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and loosely cover with foil. Coat the remaining fish with batter and cook in the remaining 2 teaspoons oil; adjust heat as necessary for even browning. Serve immediately with Mango Salsa.

Pretty good...although I felt it could have used more spice. I made a tartar sauce to go with it along with lemon. Easy and a good change for tilapia.
