baked tilapia

So yesterday I tried a new recipe that I found online and I LOVED IT! So easy and so yummy!

It was adapted from this recipe: Baked Tilapia


4 tilapia filets

1 & 1/2 tablespoon olive oil

1 dash Tony Chacheres creole seasoning

1/2 teaspoon each of garlic powder, onion powder and lemon pepper

1/2 teaspoon parsley, dried or fresh

2 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice

1 tablespoon  each of parmesan cheese and  bread crumbs and 5 smashed croutons (I used olive oil flavored Texas toast croutons)


Preheat oven to 375.  Place fish in a 9×10 baking pan. Sprinkle TC’s creole seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, lemon pepper and parsley over fish. Pour olive oil & lemon juice over the fish. Bake for 15 minutes. Mix parmesan cheese, bread crumbs and croutons and sprinkle over fish. Bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes until fish flakes easily with fork. Switch oven to broil for 2 minutes to get fish crispy, if desired.*

*I personally think that broiling is necessary and adds to both the texture & flavor of the tilapia.

Number of Servings: 3-4

My hubby & lillte sister loved it & asked for seconds! Next time I’ll have to make more for second helpings!! 🙂

Sorry there are no pics, we gobbled it up too quickly to snap any!!

Happy Wednesday! Hope it’s a great one for ya!
