Butter Crumb Tilapia Recipe
4 to 6 tilapia fillets or about 1 1/2 pounds
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup soft fresh bread crumbs
tablespoons melted butter or
1/2 teaspoon dried leaf basil
Heat oven to 400° and lightly grease a shallow baking dish large enough for the fillets. Arrange fish fillets on the pan and season with salt and pepper.
Add the butter with remaining seasonings and toss with the bread crumbs making sure the ingredients are combined thoroughly.
Sprinkle the crumbs over the tilapia fillets.
Bake the fish fillets for 14 to 18 minutes, or until fish is cooked through. Broil for 2 to 4 minutes to brown the topping. Fish should be flaky when it is done.
Carefully remove the fillets and plate. To make a complete meal you can add a few side dishes such as green beans and a salad.
