Crispy Dill Tilapia

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

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.

      Delicious and so easy to fix. We love fish, and I'm trying to add it to our menu more often. This one will be a keeper and used often.
