Tilapia Milanese

Quick, simple, delicious and healthy.  Great dish.  I served ours with some mac and cheese and a salad on the side.  Enjoy!

-4 tilapia fillets
-1 1/2 cups milk
-2 cups ice
-1 cup flour
-1 tsp salt
-1 tsp pepper
-3 eggs
-1 cup Italian-style bread crumbs
-zest from 1 lemon
-2 Tbs extra virgin olive oil
-2 Tbs unsalted butter
Pour milk and ice into a large bowl.  Add the fish and let it sit on the counter for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, mix the flour with salt and pepper in a shallow bowl.  In another bowl, beat the eggs.  In a third bowl, mix the crumbs with the lemon zest.
Preheat the oven to 425 F.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.  Set aside.
Heat the oil and butter in large skillet. Dredge each fillet through flour mixture, then eggs, the crumbs.  Place in hot oil.  Cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until golden brown.
Transfer on prepared sheet.  Bake in preheated oven for about 8 minutes or until fish is cooked through.  Enjoy!
