Nilasing na Tilapia Recipe

5 from 1 review

Nilasing in Filipino translates to “intoxicated by alcohol” or “drunk”. The Nilasing na Tilapia Recipe almost holds the same meaning in a way. Nilasing na Tilapia is a very simple dish that only requires a few steps and ingredients. Frying is involved so the fish(tilapia) gets to be really crispy on the outside and very tender, and savory on the inside.


  • 1 piece medium Tilapia (Cleaned)
  • ¾ cup cooking wine
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • ½ cup All- Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp Salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ cups cooking oil


  1. Prepare the Tilapia by seasoning both sides with salt, ground black pepper, and garlic powder.
  2. Make sure to rub all over the fish.
  3. Put the Tilapia on a plate.
  4. Pour the cooking wine over the Tilapia and marinate each side for 15 minutes.
  5. Mix the Cornstarch and All- Purpose Flour in a resealable bag and shake well.
  6. Put the marinated Tilapia in the bag and shake until it is coated with the flour and cornstarch mixture.
  7. Set aside.
  8. In a cooking pan, start heating the cooking oil.
  9. Fry the tilapia in medium heat until it turns golden brown and crisp.
  10. Remove the Tilapia from the pan.
