12 ingredients

  1. 2 tbsps cream cheese
  2. 2 large eggs
  3. 3/4 cups flour
  4. 1 tbsp fresh parsley
  5. 12 oz green beans
  6. 4 servings kosher salt
  7. 1 cups low sodium chicken broth
  8. 1/4 tsps paprika
  9. 4 servings bell pepper
  10. 24 oz tilapia fillets
  11. 1/4 cups vegetable oil
  12. 1/4 cups whole milk

Instructions

  1. Place the green beans in a microwave-safe dish.
  2. Add 1/4 cup water and 1/2 teaspoon salt, cover loosely with plastic wrap and microwave until tender, about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, sprinkle the fish all over with 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to taste.
  3. Combine the flour and paprika in a shallow dish. Beat the eggs in another dish. Dip each fish fillet in the eggs, then dredge in the flour mixture, turning to coat. Reserve the flour mixture.
  4. Heat 3 tablespoons vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, fry the fish until cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  5. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil. Wipe out the skillet.
  6. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in the skillet over medium-high heat.
  7. Whisk in 3 tablespoons of the reserved flour mixture, then add the chicken broth and 1/4 cup water; bring to a boil, whisking.
  8. Add the milk, cream cheese and parsley; cook, whisking, until slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Divide the fish among plates. Top with the sauce and sprinkle with paprika.
  9. Serve with the green beans.
