Every week I try to serve a new healthy fish. This dish with mild tilapia is a winner with its fresh dill and delicious panko breadcrumb herb crust. —Tamara Huron, New Market, Alabama

Ingredients

  • 1 cup panko (Japanese) bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 tilapia fillets (6 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Lemon wedges

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°. Toss together first five ingredients.
Place tilapia in a 15x10x1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray; brush with lemon juice. Top with crumb mixture, patting to help adhere.
Bake, uncovered, on an upper oven rack until fish just begins to flake easily with a fork, 12-15 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges. Yield: 4 servings.

Test Kitchen tips
  • This breading would complement most types of fish. Try it on salmon if you prefer.
  • If you don't have fresh dill, a bit of fresh thyme would be great with fish and lemon.
  • Tossing the bread crumbs with a bit of oil helps it crisp up in the short amount of time it takes to cook the fish.
