Day Forty-Six - Red Pepper Parmesan Tilapia (3.20.14)

  • 1 egg (or 1/4 cup egg substitute)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 4 tilapia filets (6 oz each)
  1. Crack egg in a shallow bowl. In another shallow bowl, combine the cheese, Italian seasoning, pepper flakes and pepper. Dip fillets in egg, then cheese mixture.
  2. Place in a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

Katie: I think that this is the best breaded tilapia I've made at home. The flavors were great and the recipe was so easy. There was quick preparation and quick baking time so the dish is also great for a time crunch.

Potter: This tasted great but no matter what I did I couldn't get the breading to crisp up. Definitely a great fast, simple recipe. Next time I would add a bit more crushed red pepper and italian seasoning just to give it a little bit more heat.
