This recipe is perfect for a quick, healthy dinner, especially during the week when time for cooking greatly diminishes. Tilapia, which doesn’t taste too “fishy,” is a great source of protein and low in calories. I like to add more flavor and create a crunchier texture with the breadcrumb and Parmesan cheese coating. Serve with a side of vegetables for some added nutrition!
Ingredients (serves two)
- Two tilapia fillets
- 1/4 cup Panko bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
- 3/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 3 Tbsp. Egg Beaters (or beat one egg)
- 1 Tbsp. canola oil
If you use the individually wrapped, frozen fillets (like I did), make sure to thaw before cooking. Pour egg into shallow bowl. Combine bread crumbs, cheese and garlic powder on a small plate, mixing well. Heat canola oil in pan over medium heat. Coat fillet with egg, then coat with bread crumb mixture. Place in pan and cook for 3 minutes, then flip and cook for an additional 3 minutes, or until fully cooked. Repeat with second fillet and serve warm.
