Breaded and Baked Tilapia


I declared in my January: A Month in Review post that I was going to create and bake more entree dishes. And I haven’t really done a very good job of seeing that through.

My last 5 posts were sinfully sweet little treats (Paczki, Granola, Chocolate Cupcakes, White Cupcakes, and Pavlova), which I enjoyed both making and consuming. However, I am trying to be a well-rounded baking blogger here and I need to throw a bone to my savory side every now and again.

Tonight I decided to dig some tilapia fillets from the freezer to prepare a nice oven baked dinner. Working with what I had in the pantry, I cooked up a pretty nice little meal.


I also baked some carrots that we had in the refrigerator left over from a chicken noodle soup Wills made earlier in the week (My dad and Grandpa’s recipe: Peel and cut carrots, toss in olive oil with salt and pepper, bake for 45 minutes, enjoy!).

This tilapia is crispy on the outside and a little tangy. I did not follow a recipe so I will provide my own 🙂
