Oven Fried Fish in a dish
Makes: 4 Servings
Total Cost: $$$$

Oven fried fish pairs well with fresh summer vegetables or hearty root vegetables in the winter.

Ingredients

  • 1 egg (slightly beaten)
  • salt (optional, 1/2 teaspoon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 pound tilapia fillets, fresh or thawed (4 fillets)
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
  • fresh lime or lemon (sliced, optional)

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 °F.
  3. In a small bowl, add egg, salt (if desired), and pepper and beat together.
  4. Place the bread crumbs in a separate bowl. Dip fish fillets in the egg mixture, then dip in the bread crumbs to coat.
  5. Melt butter in a shallow 9x13 inch baking pan for 1 minute in the oven. Tilt pan to coat with butter.
  6. Arrange fish fillets in the pan.
  7. Bake uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes, until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve topped with lime or lemon slices (optional).

Notes

Instead of bread crumbs, 1/2 cup crushed, unsweetened cereal or 1/2 cup crushed saltine crackers can be used.
