Parmesan Breaded Tilapia
Serve with your favorite salad.

Servings: 4

• 1 1/3 pounds tilapia fillets
• 1/2 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
• 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
• 2 teaspoon garlic powder
• 2 tablespoon lemon juice
• Kosher salt
• Fresh ground black pepper
• Olive oil cooking spray

Thaw and wash tilapia fillets if frozen; pat dry.

Combine crumbs, parmesan and garlic powder on a plate, mixing well.

On a different plate, pour 1 tbsp lemon juice.

Working 1 at a time, place a fillet on the plate in the lemon juice, sprinkle with desired amount of kosher salt (needs very little if any, because of the parmesan and seasonings), black pepper, and garlic powder. Turn the fillet over in the lemon juice and sprinkle seasoning on the other side.

Dredge fillet in the parmesan and crumb mixture patting it all over to coat.

Place in an baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking oil spray; repeat with remaining fillets.

Sprinkle a little lemon juice over fillets and drizzle or spray them lightly with olive oil.

Bake at 425ºF for about 20 minutes or until they easily flake with a fork and edges begin to brown.
