“This is a very simple recipe that I have altered from a recipe I found some years ago. It's quick and easy, fresh and most of all, my picky husband and son love it! I serve it with Brown and Wild Rice and a vegetable (my fav is steamed broccoli). Note that I use Bookbinder's Breadcrumbs in this recipe, as they add a nice lemony flavor that really makes the dish. I've used plain breadcrumbs and it's just not as good. I've also found that using an enamel cast iron baking dish produces a superior result.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Lightly spray a glass or enamel baking dish to assist in cleanup.
  3. Wash and pat dry 1-2 pounds of Tilapia filets, and place in the dish side by side.
  4. Season fish with any desired seasonings (salt, pepper, other spice blends). In a separate bowl, measure grated parmesan, breadcrumbs, and enough olive oil to make a moist crumble.
  5. Spoon over the top of the fish to cover the filets.
  6. Bake in oven for 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily.
