Herb-Breaded Tilapia

I loved this recipe! I am not a huge fish eater, although tilapia is my favorite fish. This came together quickly and had great flavor.

Serves: 2

2 tilapia filets
2 Tbsp. flour
1 egg
1 lemon, divided
1/3 cup bread crumbs (I used panko)
2 Tbsp chopped parsley
2 tsp. chopped thyme
1/4 tsp. garlic powder


  1. Season tilapia with salt and pepper, then dredge in flour, shaking off excess.

  2. Lightly beat egg in a small baking dish or bowl, then mix in the juice of half a lemon. In a separate dish, combine the breadcrumbs, parsley, thyme, garlic powder. Salt and pepper to taste.

  3. Dip the floured tilapia in the egg, then into the breadcrumb mixture, coating evenly and pressing to adhere.

  4. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium heat, then add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Once hot, add the tilapia. Cook for approximately 3 minutes per side, or until fish is cokked through and flakes easily.

  5. Cut the remaining half lemon into wedges and serve with the tilapia.
