20min Breaded Tilapia

Breaded Tilapia

Tilapia Filets (as many as desired)
1 tbsp olive oil
1-1/2 cups plain or italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup Panko Japanese bread crumbs
If using plain bread crumbs, add the following:
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp italian seasoning
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper

Mix bread crumbs with seasonings (if needed) until well combined.  Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in skillet.  Coat tilapia filets evenly on both sides with bread crumbs and place in skillet over medium-high heat.  Brown filets for 5 minutes and turn to brown other side for another 5 minutes.  Remove tilapia from skillet and place on sheet pan.  Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees until fish is golden brown.  A fool proof, super easy and delicious meal in minutes!

Variations:  Use any type of fish filets if you don't fancy tilapia or add 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper to spice it up!
