A fast and easy recipe. Could use the recipe with other types of white fish also. The recipe came from my local grocery store with a few changes.

1/4 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese (not the canned kind)
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon grated lemons, rind of
3 tablespoons butter (divided)
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1-2 tablespoon lemon juice (or use amount of juice from small lemon used above for lemon peel)

2-3 servings Change size or US/metric

18 minutes 10 mins prep

  1. Rinse fish and pat dry.
  2. Combine bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, garlic salt, and lemon peel on waxed paper.
  3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter.
  4. Dip fillets in melted butter.
  5. Coat fillet with crumb mixture.
  6. In nonstick skillet, melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter with oil over medium heat.
  7. Cook fillets for 2 to 4 minutes per side or until fish flakes easily.
  8. Sprinkle with lemon juice.
  9. When removing fish from skillet, use a spatula or the fish will fall apart.

***** Made it exactly as recipe, it was delicious. Not a fish lover, but this recipe makes eating fish a lot easier. Suggestion: maybe provide some interesting side dishes to compliment the fish. Thank You ! Aug 30, 2005

***** Very, very good!! I used "diet" butter and still was delicious. I'm wondering if I could use olive oil rather than veg oil to increase the healthiness of this dish. I had fairly thick, fresh filets so they took a bit longer - about 5 minutes/side. Definitely will be making this one again! Jun 13, 2005, 1 member found this helpful

***** I've been eating a lot of tilapia in the past few months, and this is by far the best preparation I've found. The cheese and lemon peel lent an interesting flavor; I'll definitely make this again. Thanks for the posting! Apr 5, 2004, 1 member found this helpful
