Easy Baked Crusted Tilapia

Looking for something healthy to prepare in a jiffy?

Here’s another tilapia recipe that is so easy to make, moist, tender and flavorful that’s ready in 15-17 minutes.*  You can prepare a side dish to complement this succulent dish, such as salad or couscous while it’s baking.  This will come in handy during school days when you don’t have time to prepare anything as delectable and healthy as this.  See it?  The picture speaks for itself.

*Note:  Due to variations on all ovens, cooking time may require adjustments.

Ingredients:

  • 3 Tilapia fillets
  • Progresso Italian Style Panko crumbs
  • 4 tablespoons mustard
  • 4 teaspoons honey
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • Weber Roasted garlic and herbs seasoning
  • 3 pinches of salt (adjust according to your taste)

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Coat a baking dish with baking spray. Set aside.
  • Mix mustard, lemon, salt, and honey in a bowl. Set aside.
  • Put the Panko crumbs on a large plate.  Set aside.
  • Season fillets with roasted garlic seasoning.
  • Scoop 1 tablespoon of mustard mixture and drizzle on one side of each fillet.  Spread the mixture using the back of a spoon.  Do the same on the other side then dip it in the Panko crumbs to coat.
  • Repeat the process with the remaining fillets.  Place in the baking dish and bake for 15 -17 minutes.*

Variation:  Chicken thighs or Chicken breast

  • You might want to triple the mustard coating recipe if you want to use it for chicken.  I used 5 skinless, boneless chicken thighs.  Season the chicken with salt, pepper, and roasted garlic and herbs seasoning.  Dip in mustard mixture then coat with Panko crumbs.

Place on the baking dish and bake at 425 degrees for 25-30 minutes. *
