Quick and Easy Tilapia with Panko

Printer-friendly version


  • 1 to 2 lbs. of tilapia or any white fish
  • Panko bread crumbs (quantity is up to you—go light or heavy as desired)
  • Garlic salt to taste
  • 1 lemon
  • 2 to 4 tbl. of butter
  • Fresh chopped parsley for garnish


Line a shallow baking pan with foil or apply a cooking spray to bottom of pan.  Place tilapia on pan and sprinkle with Panko bread crumbs.  Sprinkle with garlic salt to taste.

Squeeze fresh lemon juice over tilapia.  I usually squeeze half a lemon over and then save the remaining half to use at the table for those who want more lemon zip.

Cut butter into small pieces and distribute over the top of the fish.

Fran’s Notes

This is my first post since the Boston Marathon.  My thoughts and prayers are with the people of my beloved hometown and particularly with the people who were so profoundly and grievously impacted by the events on Monday.  But for the grace of God and a few chance minutes, one of my daughters could easily have been included in that group.
