2 tilapia fillets (5 to 6 ounces each)
3/4 cup 2 percent milk
1 cup ice cubes
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
Kosher salt, to taste
Fresh ground pepper, to taste
2 large eggs
3 slices of white bread, torn into pieces
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 cup of fresh parsley leaves, stems removed
Lemon zest from 1/2 fresh lemon, plus lemon slices for garnish
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons butter

Preheat oven to 425 F. Soak tilapia in a bowl with milk and ice cubes for at least 15 minutes.

Season flour with salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs. Using a food processor, pulse the bread, Parmesan, parsley, lemon zest and salt until you have a coarse crumb mixture and place on a plate.

Take each tilapia fillet and dredge in the flour, shaking off any excess. Dip the fish in the egg mixture, then completely coat with the fresh breadcrumbs.

Heat oil and butter in a large skillet and sauté the fillets until golden brown on each side (about 2 minutes per side.) Transfer tilapia to a foil-lined baking sheet and bake for approximately 8 minutes, until fish is cooked through. Serve with lemon wedges.
