crunchy baked tilapia with coconut basmati rice
Geoff and I love fish, and it’s always fun to find new ways to prepare it. We tried a sample of something similar to this meal at our local gourmet grocery store a few months ago, and I was excited to recreate it at home. I love a quick and easy healthy dinner, and the flavor combo was just amazing! The kiddos loved it too (although they are a little atypical in their love of fish). I topped the fish with some fresh mango peach salsa from Costco, and it was so delicious and fresh tasting. Yum!
Crunchy Baked Tilapia
tilapia fillets (I baked 4 for my little family, but bake as many as you need)
2-3 tablespoons of breadcrumbs per fillet
1 tablespoon of flour per fillet
garlic powder to taste
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 375. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Mix breadcrumbs, flour, garlic powder, and salt and pepper on a plate or shallow dish. Coat tilapia fillets with breadcrumb/flour mixture and place on baking sheet. Spray the tops of the fillets with cooking spray. Bake 20-25 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
