Tilapia with Green Beans Amandine
Japanese bread crumbs give tilapia a light, crispy coating that doesn’t overpower the delicate fish. Lemony green beans are the ideal complement to this delightful entree. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

The whole family enjoyed this recipe...will definitely make again. I used frozen green beans as that's all I had on hand & they were great.
