Panko Crusted Tilapia with Garden Salad

You may or may not know that I love Fresh and Easy. I was there the other day and was browsing their clearance section and snatched up two things of Tilapia for $2 each! I never really had much fish growing up, my mom didn’t like it, so I really don’t know how to prepare it. I found this recipe in a magazine a while back and thought it was a wonderfully light and healthy way to prepare fish.

It’s so easy, you need 3 ingredients! White flaky fish of your choice, panko bread crumbs and olive oil. (ok – and salt and pepper).

Take 1/2 cup panko in a small bowl and mix with 2 Tbsp of Olive Oil. Season fish on both sides with salt and pepper. Place on a baking pan and firmly press the panko onto one side.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.

For the salad I just tossed together what I had. Romaine lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, and feta cheese. It was really yummy too!

The best part? My boys ate it up! I didn't tell Andrew what it was, I just said it was yummy stuff with bread crumbs on it and he was sold.

Welcome to a new week!


  1. Well I know we are suppose to eat more fish.. But all the fish I've seen lately doesn't look appetitesing at all. It has no color just blah. We need to come up with a way for it to have some color. Well that is just my idea. Salad looks really good, I'm going to try making it...

    1. That's true. I don't eat a lot of fish mostly because I know its can't be super fresh with where I live. Anytime I visit a coastal city I love eating fish and knowing that its fresh and yummy. Thanks for coming by!

  2. Thanks for linking up with us for Tips and Tricks Tuesday!
