Cornmeal Crusted Fish

I have come up with another way to eat fish.  I used tilapia, pulled some stuff out of the pantry, and went to town.  It turned out pretty tasty and it was a nice way to change up a dish that we have a lot.

Cornmeal Crusted Fish:

2 tilapia fillets (or more if you're feeding more than 2 people)
2-3 egg whites
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
1 tablespoon blackening spice (I used Old Bay)
salt and pepper
Olive Oil

Heat a pan on medium high heat and add some olive oil.  I think I used about 2 tablespoons.  Put the egg whites in one bowl and the cornmeal, salt, pepper, and blackening spice in another bowl and mix together.

Take each fish fillet and put it in the egg white then in the cornmeal mixture.  Press the cornmeal onto the fish and shake off any excess.  Place each fillet in the heated pan and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until the fish is cooked through and flaky.
