Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

From: Kitch Me

3 to 4 tilapia fillet, depending on size
14 cup bread crumbs, or crushed buttery round crackers
14 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 kosher salt, to taste
1 pepper, to taste
1 garlic powder, to taste
1 olive oil

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Grease a baking dish.
  2. Combine bread crumbs, parmesan, Italian seasoning, and 1 teaspoon garlic powder on a plate; mix well.
  3. On a different plate, pour 1 tablespoon lemon juice.
  4. Working one at a time, place a fillet in the plate with lemon juice, season to taste with salt, black pepper, and garlic powder. Turn fish over in the lemon juice and season the other side.
  5. Dredge fillet in the parmesan mixture, patting it all over to coat.
  6. Place in prepared baking dish; repeat with remaining fish.
  7. Sprinkle a little lemon juice over fillets and drizzle or spray them lightly with olive oil.
  8. Bake for about 20 minutes or until fish easily flakes with a fork and edges are brown.

Thumbs up! I really like the flavor of tilapia and am trying to incorporate more fish into our diet. I figured I would start with a recipe that isn't too outlandish. My son (3 years old) ate a ton of this. I also really liked it. My daughter (5 years old) said it was too spicy for her, which I guess is the tilapia flavor. I'll definitely be making this again though.
