In the Kitchen with Jason: Breaded Parmesan Tilapia

Fish, fish, a wonderful food. The more you eat, the more, you're full... or something like that. This recipe almost turned into a pizza dinner when we found out we were missing one of the ingredients. But no fail, I made something up that tasted great. Listed below is the recipe that I came up with that is a variation of a recipe in the "Eat What You Love" cookbook.

  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • A few shakes pepper
  • A few shakes garlic powder
  • 2 tsp butter melted
  • 1 1/4 lbs tilapia
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Mix all non-fish ingredients in a shallow bowl.
  • Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  • Lightly spray the fish with cooking spray.
  • One at a time, bread the fish with the mixture in the bowl.
    • You will want to actively push the breading onto the fish as more will stick to it if you use a little force.
  • Bake in the oven for 12 minutes, flipping once.
  • Be careful when serving as this will be very tender and fall apart easily.
This went really well with a side of chips and carrots.

Please enjoy!
