  1. Rinse and dry tilapia filets.

  4. Dip tilapia into the egg wash and then into the bread crumb mixture.
  5. Place in a greased glass dish and bake for 12-15 minutes.

Tips: I used seasoned bread crumbs for better flavor, and added a little bit of lemon juice for a special kick! 

  1. Sorry there are so many different fonts…I’ll try to clean it up later. I’m watching “Date Night” with Tina Fey and Steve Carrell, and then going to bed.

  2. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I am gonna try this, it looks like its very tasty. Hubby is on a resticted diet right now so he can’t have the bread crumbs or lemon juice, but I wonder how it would taste without those for now. Have you ever made it without the bread crumbs?

  3. Yum Thanks for sharing. I’m going to give it a try swapping out the margarine for greek yogurt.

  4. Hey Linda, I have found other recipes without the breadcrumbs. I’ve never made it without it, but I’m sure it would turn out just fine. I would add lemon pepper seasoning if he can have that.

  5. Tex, I’ve heard great things about greek yogurt, but I’ve never tried it. I’m sure that would reduce the calories and add a really unique flavor.
