Herb Crusted Tilapia and a Baby Shower
Aside from the 15 degree temperature and VERY windy, snowy weather here yesterday, it was a fantastic fun day for Bill and me! If you follow my blog, you may recall that I am going to be a grandmother for the first time.
Kathy’s baby shower was held yesterday and what great amazing gifts she and Matt received for their baby boy who is expected the middle of February. I had no idea there are so wonderful things for a baby!
I’m hoping the little guy will like fish as he grows up as baked fish is a great choice for any meal and healthy too! Tilapia is popular and noted for its capability for absorbing other flavors, especially herbs; dried and fresh.
This recipe is easy and tasty. It has a kick of flavor from the light coating of Dijon mustard along with herbs and horseradish. Panko bread crumbs makes a delicious crunching topping for the tender flaky tilapia. I’m crazy about baked tilapia!
Herb Crusted Tilapia
2 pounds tilapia filets
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon horseradish
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried parsley
½ teaspoon thyme
½ cup Panko bread crumbs
Pat dry tilapia with a paper towel.
Mix mustard, horseradish, onion powder, parsley and thyme in a small bowl.
Spread mixture over filets.
Scatter bread crumbs over top.
Drizzle over all with olive oil.
Bake 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes until fish is fork tender and golden.
