Baked Lemon Breadcrumb Tilapia

Not that many people probably remember, but, this is very similar to a recipe I posted a while back for Tilapia Oreganata, but I had to post this.  It's just too tasty and too simple not to share.  The topping is zesty and crunchy and goes perfectly with an easy lemon aioli.

1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
1 Tablespoon plain, unseasoned breadcrumbs
zest and juice of 1 lemon
1 spring fresh rosemary, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, finely minced
salt and pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 tilapia fillets

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.  Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.  Rinse the tilapia and pat dry.  Place in prepared baking dish.  In a bowl, mix together the panko, unseasoned breadcrumbs, lemon zest, rosemary and garlic until well combined.  Toss in 1/2 the lemon juice and.  Season with salt and pepper.  Drizzle remaining juice over the tilapia and top with breadcrumb mixture.  Drizzle with olive oil.  Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork.  Serve with tartar sauce or lemon aioli if desired.  Enjoy!

I remember well the oreganata. They say that bacon makes everything better, but the truth is lemon is more healthy and a remarkable condiment.

I do a very similar dish with the crispy panko and lemon - it's sooo good. I am going to make the aioli the next time I make it - love that!
