- 4 to 6 tilapia fillets, about 1 1/2 pounds
- Salt and pepper
- 1 cup soft fresh bread crumbs
- 3 tablespoons melted butter
- 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf basil
Arrange fish fillets on the prepared baking pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Combine the butter with remaining seasonings and toss with the bread crumbs. Sprinkle the crumbs over the tilapia fillets.
Bake the fish fillets for 15 to 18 minutes, or until fish is cooked through. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes to brown the topping. Fish will flake easily with a fork when done.
Carefully remove the fillets to plates with a spatula.
