Serve this flavorful tilapia with French fries or rice and your favorite vegetables.


  • 2 to 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs, or use fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • dash leaf thyme
  • dash ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon parsley flakes
  • 6 to 8 tilapia fillets
  • 1/3 cup Creole mustard or a spicy brown mustard
  • 1/3 cup light mayonnaise


Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

In a food processor, combine panko bread crumbs and seasonings; pulse several times, or until bread crumbs are fine. Combine mustard and mayonnaise; coat tilapia fillets with the mixture then coat with bread crumbs.

Fry the coated tilapia fillet in a single layer, turning carefully after about 3 to 4 minutes. Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes longer, or until cooked through and lightly browned.
