Dave and I shopped at Costco today. We hadn’t filled the pantry in a while so we knew it was going to be a big buy… Yes it was! We hit the meat department with a fully loaded cart. Holy moly did we get sticker shock at the beef isle! Quickly revising my meal plans, we started hunting deals. Dave found some cheap pork and we also found Tilapia for a reasonable price. We knew our son, Evan, would be happy. He loves fish. The poor guy rarely gets it because Dave and I aren’t usually fans of seafood. We went home with a dinner challenge! I had to invent a recipe for Tilapia we would all enjoy.

I dug around in the, now well stocked, pantry and came up with this beauty of a recipe. For the breading I’m fond of using crushed Focaccia croutons. We love the flavor and texture they add to a meal. I mixed them up with some dill and dried mustard for a bit of tang. The parmesan added more flavorful texture and helped the breading melt together a bit for nice crusty, crunchy bits.

Breaded Tilapia Parmesan Recipe:

The result was a fish dinner that Dave, Evan and I all enjoyed. I am pleased with this recipe. It was so good we had no leftover fish. Try it garnished with a jalapeno slice or two for some spicy zing.  I know you will love this dinner as much as we did!

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Oil a shallow 13 x 9 baking dish with the avocado oil and oil the fish fillets thoroughly and set aside.
  • Put the croutons into a gallon zip lock bag and crush them in the bag with a rolling pin until a very fine texture.
  • Add mustard, dill, and parsley flakes to the crushed croutons and mix well.
  • Add the parmesan cheese to the crouton mixture and mix well.
  • Put a layer of the breading into the shallow baking pan.
  • Put the rest of the crushed crouton mixture on a large plate and dredge the fish through it. Now lay the fillets on the layer of breading in the baking pan.
  • Arrange the fish into one layer close together and pour the remaining breading evenly over the top of the fish.
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until the fish is white all the way through.
  • Serve with the lemon quarters
