Crispy Parmesean Tilapia Fillets

January 20, 2010 at 11:24 am (Entrees, Fish/Seafood)

This came on the package of fresh Tilapia that I bought at Publix.  I can’t find it on their website though.


-2/3 C. Italian Bread Crumbs

-1/2 Tsp. Paprika

-1/4 C. Garlic Flavored Parmesan Cheese (I usually use regular parmesean cheese and sprinkle some garlic powder in for good measure)

-1/4 C. Milk

-1 Egg

-4 (8 oz) Fish Fillets

-Cooking Oil (if pan frying)  I use Canola or Olive Oil


Mix together bread crumbs, paprika, and parmesan cheese ina  shallow pan.  (Or use a gallon sized ziploc bag).  In shallow bowl, mix together milk and egg.  Dip fish fillets in milk/egg mixture, then coat fillets with crumb mixture.  Pan fry or oven fry according to the following instructions:

To pan fry:  Preheat skillet with small amount of conola oil or butter flavored oil (we use Olive Oil) on medium-high heat.  Place breaded fillets in the preheated skillet and saute for 5 mins on each side, or until golden brown.  Serve hot.

To oven fry:  Preheat oven to 450 Degrees.  Place breaded fillets on a baking sheet that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.  Bake approximately 5-6 mins, then turn fillet once and continue cooking for another 5-6 minutes.
