Hi sweet friends! The boys and I had a busy week full of sprinklers, play-dates, gardening, fun in the sun and lots and LOTS of bike rides! They are both really into their bikes right now and Brian made them a chalk race-track to add to the fun! Needless to say, they’ve been having a blast in our driveway! The time got away from me this week and I found myself making dinner on the fly; this tilapia dish being one of them! I made it up as I stood in the kitchen and it was full of flavor and took no longer than 30 minutes to serve a hot, home cooked meal. The boys loved it and I think its definitely worthy of sharing!
If you like Tilapia, I’m sure you’ll love this!
4-6 Tilapia Fillets
1 tsp. Minced Garlic for each fillet
Plain Panko Breadcrumbs
Parsley (Sub: Basil OR Italian Seasoning)
2 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter
S&P (to your liking)
Spray a 9×13 baking dish with Pam then place tilapia fillets in dish.
Squeeze lemon juice over fillets then sprinkle minced garlic over each fillet.
In separate bowl, mix together a handful of panko breadcrumbs, as much parmesan cheese as you like and 1/2 tsp onion powder. Top each fillet with the mixture, pressing it down as you go.
Put a few mini dollops of butter over the fillets and finish by shaking a little S&P and parsley on top! *If you want, you can also sub basil OR Italian Seasoning instead of the parsley.
Cover with foil & bake for 15-20 until fish pulls apart with a fork.
Uncover and broil for 2-3 minutes so the tops turn golden brown.
Serve with Rice Pilaf & Steamed Green Beans (and more parmesan on the green beans too!)
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
