Breadcrumb-Crusted Baked Tilapia

“‘Laps and Tates” is what my SO used to eat. In normal people language that’s “tilapia and potatoes.” When he moved up here, he moved up with a childhood friend. They were tight on cash, and potatoes were cheap, and tilapia is definitely the cheapest of the fish. I’ve never been much of a tilapia fan, but I have had a few recipes that are fantastic!

This baked tilapia has lots of flavor and is definitely worth checking out. You won’t be sorry!  

I love this recipe because it has a bit of a Mexican flavor palette, which is great. It’s clean. It’s fresh. It’s bright. I enjoy it a lot.

  1. 2 medium tilapia fillets cut into 6 pieces
  2. 1 cup breadcrumbs (gluten free if needed)
  3. 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  4. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  5. 2 tbsp melted butter
  6. salt and pepper to taste
  7. lime wedges to serve
  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Place the tilapia pieces on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle the fish with salt and pepper and set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine bread crumbs, cilantro, garlic and butter.
  3. Divide the mixture between the fish pieces and coat them evenly. Press the crumbs on with your hands slightly to make sure that they are covering the fish nicely.
  4. Bake the fish for 15-20 minutes, or until it is white and flakes easily, and the crumbs are golden brown.
  5. Serve with lime wedges.
