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. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. In a small bowl, add egg, salt (if desired), and pepper and beat together.

3. Place the bread crumbs in a separate bowl. Dip fish fillets in the egg mixture, then dip in the bread crumbs to coat.

4. Melt butter in a shallow 9x13 inch baking pan for 1 minute in the oven. Tilt pan to coat with butter. 

5. Arrange fish fillets in the pan.

6. Bake uncovered for 15-20 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.
