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

Ingredients:

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
Olive oil

Method:

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.


Enjoy!!!

I am thrilled that you are going to be a grand mother...it will be the most exciting thing in your life! I just might try this, I am not crazy for fish but this sure sounds good! ;D

I love baby showers and it must be even more fun when it is for your new grandchild! Tilapia is one of our favorite fish to eat. There is always a fillet or two in the freezer. I will have to use your recipe next time I cook them.

Dear Pam:

WOW it's cold out there ! But I'm happy to hear you're having a great time "expecting" your grandson .I should say the last baby shower I went to was a surprise to me too, so many things I didn't know existed, isn't that too much? But I suppose moms and babies do enjoy all these stuff.

Tilapia is great, I try to cook as much fish as possible, so I'm copying these idea right away, big hug

Deborah said...

Baby showers are the best!! You will love being a grandma. And this fish sounds so delicious!

TKW said...

The fish looks delicious and how adorable is the mama to be? She's one of those "cute pregnant" women--I'm jealous!

StephenC said...

How can a young woman like you be a grandmother? Nonetheless, congratulations. I'm not a huge fan of tilapia (I like it fine, but prefer catfish). Also, the festive top of your page is holiday-rific.

Cathy said...

Being a grandma is the most wonderful thing in the world. And lucky little baby to have such a sweet grandma. Happy Holidays.

Velva said...

I hear becoming a grandmother is like falling in love all over again :-) Awesome.

Great tilapia dish. You are right, this is a healthy and light fish that absorbs flavors well.

Cheers.

Sounds like the baby shower was fun.

I love tilapia but have not seen it in the shops here. Diane

Pam said...

Clements Family, thanks!

Julie Harward, it's a thrilling thing that I can hardly wait to meet Baby Boy! I used to not be crazy about fish either but have learned to love it in recent years.

Linda www.mykindofcooking.com, we had so much fun at the shower and I was just amazed by it all. I'm so proud of Kathy & Matt! Glad you like the fish also!

Pamela, yes! It's bitter cold and windy today also but nice and sunny! Yes, I had no idea to the wide range of baby gear; they received a nice variety of good things. Hugs to you!

Jennifurla, me too! Thanks so much! The tilapia is good!

Deborah, I'm sure and just counting the time until he arrives on the scene!

TKW, yes! Kathy is adorable and will make a great loving mom! I didn't look that good back in the days either! She's amazing!

StephenC, lol! Thanks! Flattery always works for me, especially when I'm not so young. I love catfish also and have it often.

Cathy, that's what I hear from so many people and can't wait to experience it!

Velva, you said it perfectly! I'm sure it is! Thanks for that and about the tilapia too!

Hi sweet Kathy!!! What a fun exciting time yesterday! The baby is lucky to have great parents like you and Matt will be. Glad you like the fish. Love you...

Food, Fun and Life in the Charente, thanks! It was! I'm sorry you're unable to find the tilapia. It's so mild and delicious but there are others that are also that this recipe would work with.
