parmesan-panko crusted tilapia

We have been in a major salmon and shrimp rut when it comes to seafood. I decided that we should try something new, so I went straight to Pinterest to browse my "Yummy for My Tummy" board. I had pinned this recipe, but I didn't like the idea of using cereal to coat the fish. So, I substituted Panko (one of my new favorite things to use on fish!). This is definitely one of my new favorite fish recipes, and the Parmesan-Panko Crust would also suit salmon or chicken breasts.

Parmesan-Panko Crusted Tilapia
Makes 4 servings
  • 1 lb. Tilapia filets
  • 1/2 cup Panko
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 t. garlic powder
  • 1 t. Trader Joe's 21 Seasoning Salute
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Olive oil cooking spray
Preheat the broiler. Coat a glass baking pan with the olive oil cooking spray. Rinse the tilapia filets with water and dry with a paper towel. 

Combine the Panko, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and 21 Seasoning Salute in a medium shallow bowl. Coat fish very lightly with cooking spray and season with salt and pepper. Dip the filets in the panko-parmesan mixture to coat.

Place filets in the coated baking pan and broil 2 racks from the top for about 3-4 minutes per side.

We dont have a Trader Joes where I live so what could I substitute the 21 seasoning salute with?

Hi Alli! You could use something like Old Bay or Pappy's. Let me know what you try and how it turns out!
