Herb Crusted Tilapia

Did you think that because I said I was running out of ideas for tilapia last week that it would be a while before you saw another fish post? Well have no fear, I am back with a tasty number.  I saw this over on Pam's Midwest Kitchen Korner and immediately knew I had to try it!  This was fantastic!  I did change things just a bit, though.  I added chopped unsalted peanuts to the topping.  I had some that did not get used when I made my Grandma's Cherry Mash last month, so I figured, why not?  It's only going to add to the dish, that's for sure.  And did it... wonderfully, I might add.  So thanks Pam for the tasty new way to eat tilapia...this will definitely be working it's way on to our "favorites list"!

4-6 tilapia fillets
3 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon horseradish
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup crushed or chopped unsalted peanuts

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Spray a baking dish with non stick cooking spray.  Rinse the tilapia, pat dry with a paper towel, and place in prepared baking dish.

In a small bowl, mix together the Dijon, horseradish, onion powder, parsley, and thyme.  Spread the mixture evenly over the fillets.  Scatter the bread crumb/nut mixture evenly over each fillet.

Bake for 12 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with fork and topping is golden brown.  Enjoy!

I love peanuts. I think that's a great addition, Jenn.

I'd probably like to use pistacchios instead of peanuts, but I do like the sound of this. And I am nuts over horseradish.

great idea on adding peanuts!

Pam said...

I bet adding the peanuts improved the flavor and texture - yum!
