4-Ingredient Pan-fried Ranch Tilapia Recipe Is a Flavorful 15-Minute Dinner

If dry ranch salad dressing mix makes chicken taste so amazing (check out this ranch baked chicken recipe), I wondered how it would do with fish. The verdict? Delicious!

This easy tilapia recipe has a simple coating of breadcrumbs and dry ranch dressing, then is quickly pan-fried in olive oil. The result is a flavorful, crispy piece of fish. 

If you're not a fan of tilapia, use your favorite fish like cod, haddock, halibut or even salmon. Serve this fast family dinner recipe with a vegetable and a salad

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes 
Total Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 3 to 4


Here's how to make it:

  1. Combine the breadcrumbs, ranch salad dressing mix and 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a small bowl. Mix well. 
  2. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a nonstick skillet
  3. Coat the fish with the breadcrumb mixture. Place into the hot oil and cook until golden brown on both sides and cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes per side.
