Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 4 to 6 tilapia fillets
  • 1 cup soft fresh bread crumbs
  • 4 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Cajun seasoning
  • Pinch dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Dash black pepper


Heat oven to 400°. Lightly grease a large shallow baking dish. Arrange fish fillets on the prepared baking pan. Brush with 1 tablespoon of the melted butter. Combine the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter with the bread crumbs and seasonings. Sprinkle the crumbs over the tilapia fillets.

Bake the fish fillets for 15 to 20 minutes, or until fish is cooked through. Fish will flake easily with a fork when done.

Carefully remove the fillets to plates with a spatula.
