Tilapia with Panko

I enjoy cooking with Tilapia because it has a mild fish flavor and
I find that almost any combination goes well with this fish.
Because of its small size it cooks quickly making it a great
weekday dinner for us.

Tilapia with Panko Crumbs

4 tilapia fillets, about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds
2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
2 teaspoons honey Dijon mustard or Dijon mustard
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
1 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
Dash pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Heat oven to 400°.
Lightly grease a glass casserole dish
Combine the mayonnaise and mustard in a bowl
Then rub the mixture over the tilapia fillets.

In a food processor, combine the panko and fine bread crumbs, paprika, parsley, pepper, onion powder, and salt. Pulse to combine. Pour bread crumb mixture into a wide, shallow bowl. Place the coated fillets in the mixture, turning to coat
the fish on both sides.

Place the coated fillets in the prepared baking dish.

Bake the fish fillets for about 12- 15 minutes. It may
take a little longer if the fillets are thick.

This is a very good recipe and healthy too!

This was yummy and easy. It also reheated nicely, which was kind of surprising.
