    teaspoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1
    teaspoon finely chopped onion

  • 1 1/4
    cups Original Bisquick™ mix

    lb tilapia fillets, about 1/2 inch thick, cut into 4 serving pieces

    In small bowl, mix sauce ingredients. Refrigerate until serving.

    In 10-inch skillet or deep fryer, heat oil (1 1/2 inches) to 350°F. In shallow dish, place 1/4 cup of the Bisquick mix. Lightly coat fish with Bisquick mix.
