Herb Baked Tilapia

This is a HUGE hit in our house. I guarantee once you try this recipe, you will never want tilapia any other way. My son calls this, “Fish With Sprinkles.” I just call it delicious! Enjoy!

Herb Baked Tilapia (or “Fish with Sprinkles”)

4 (4 to 6 ounce) tilapia fillets
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup low-fat mayonnaise
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs (I prefer the Italian breadcrumbs & I skip the dried seasonings)
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Place tilapia on nonstick foil. In a small bowl, combine cheese and mayonnaise. Spread evenly over fish. In another bowl, combine bread crumbs, basil, oregano, salt and pepper.Sprinkle over fish. Coat fish lightly with cooking spray. Bake 10 minutes or until fish flakes easily with fork.

Serve with steamed broccoli and rice.

    This came out great! I will definitely make this again. Since I had some roasted red peppers in the fridge, I added them in strips on top of the fish before baking. Delish!
