     I’m always looking for new ways to cook tilapia. It’s one of the only fish I eat and I’ve only made it a handful of ways. I recently saw where someone dipped the fish in Italian dressing then in the crust and baked it. It sounded good to me so I came up with a crust and seasoning mix to go along with it. This fish is so moist and flavorful with a crunchy crust from the oven. It’s also one of the healthier ways I make the tilapia.

Italian Herb Oven Baked Tilapia (a Hezzi-D original)
4 tilapia filets
4 T. Italian dressing
1/3 c. panko breadcrumbs
1/3 c. crushed Saltine crackers

1/3 c. Parmesan cheese

2 t. parsley
2 t. paprika

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 cookie sheet with cooking spray.

2. Put the Italian dressing in a shallow dish. Combine the remaining ingredients in another shallow dish and mix well.

3. Take each tilapia filet and dip both sides in the Italian dressing then coat well with the crumb mixture. Place on the baking sheet.

4. Spray the tops of the filet with cooking spray or drizzle with olive oil. Bake for 15 minutes or until cooked through and the crust is golden brown.
