Tilapia With Panko Coating

Baked Tilapia With Panko Coating

Diana Rattray
Tilapia fillets are tasty with a light coating of mayonnaise and Dijon mustard, along with panko crumbs and seasonings. Serve these flavorful tilapia fillets with potatoes or rice, along with a tossed salad or sliced tomatoes.


  • 4 tilapia fillets, about 1 1/2 to 2 pounds
  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 2 teaspoons honey Dijon mustard or Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • Dash pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Heat oven to 400°. Lightly grease a large shallow baking dish or spray with nonstick cooking spray.

Combine the mayonnaise and mustard; rub the mixture over the tilapia fillets.

In a food processor, combine the panko and fine bread crumbs, paprika, parsley, pepper, onion powder, and salt. Pulse 4 to 6 times to combine. Pour bread crumb mixture into a wide, shallow bowl. Dip the coated fillets in the mixture, turning to coat both sides.

Arrange the coated fillets in the prepared baking dish.

Bake the fish fillets for 15 to 18 minutes, or until fish is cooked through. The time depends on thickness of the fillets. Fish will flake easily with a fork when done.

Carefully remove the fillets to plates with a spatula.

Serves 4.

Tilapia review, Member mlmarmer

This was very easy to make, very moist and tasty. I did bake it 30 minutes. I am not sure why the person on one review said it had no flavor.
