Are you having a good week? Mine has been pretty nice so far. I wanted to share one of the creations I made up this week, Baked Sesame and Bread Crumb Crusted Tilapia. I used Aggie’s awesome fish finger recipe as my starting point and just adjusted a bit (I made a scaled down version of the following recipe since I was only making the fish for Josh):
- 1 lb tilapia, cut into chunks
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1 egg and 1 egg white
- 1 cup bread crumbs (or panko)
- ¼ cup each black and regular sesame seeds (or you can just use regular, the black just makes it a little “prettier”)
- Cayenne pepper
- Salt & Pepper (if desired)
- Cooking Spray
Do you guys have any weekend plans? I’ve got some classes to teach (Attack today, Step & Pump Saturday), probably a date night with Josh tonight and out to dinner with friends Saturday night.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Setup three bowls: 1) Whole Wheat flour with desired about of cayenne pepper mixed in, 2) Egg and egg white mixed well with a fork, 3) Mix panko/bread crumbs & sesame seeds
Place a cooling wrack in a cookie sheet and spray well with cooking spray. Dip tilapia chunks in flour mixture, then egg, then bread crumb mixture and place on cooling wrack. Spray coated tilapia with cooking spray. Bake for 10-12 minutes, flipping once in the middle.
Josh’s tilapia was served with roasted butternut squash and a pear (I had the same squash/fruit but served mine with a giant plate of scrambled eggs & salsa ;)).
