Tasty tilapia fillets are flavored and seasoned with a cornmeal and bread crumb coating, then they're baked to perfection.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 1 to 1 1/2 pounds tilapia fillets
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon Creole seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf thyme, crumbled
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons melted butter, optional


Rinse tilapia fillets with cold water; pat dry.

Put flour in a shallow bowl or plate.

In another shallow bowl or pie plate, combine bread crumbs, cornmeal, seasonings, and herbs.

In another shallow bowl or pie plate, whisk eggs with cream or milk.

Dip fillets into the flour, then into the egg mixture, then dip in seasoned crumb mixture. Place on a baking sheet sprayed with butter-flavored nonstick cooking spray. If desired drizzle each fillet with a little melted butter.

Bake at 400° for 10 to 15 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.

best flavor, Member d_hightower1

I normally am not a big cook so I like for things to be quick and easy when I am in the kitchen. This recipe was just that with enough seasoning to enhance the flavor but I did kick it up a bit with a little cayenne pepper and it was just awesome.My son is not a big fish eater but I got him to try a bite and he ended up eating a whole fillet himself.
