Baked Tilapia

4 (6-8 ounce) tilapia fillets
Salt and freshly cracked black pepper
1 lime, zest and juice
2 Tbsp butter (could also use olive oil)
Dijon mustard
Panko (Japanese bread crumbs)
Cilantro for garnish
Lime slices

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray pan with cooking spray and heat in oven before adding fish. On a plate, mix panko, lime zest, salt and pepper. Rinse fish and pat dry. Season fish with a bit more salt (tilapia is a very bland fish), coat with lime juice, spread a little mustard on each fillet and coat in panko mixture. Remove pan from oven and place fish in the pan. Place a pat of butter on each fillet (or drizzle a little olive oil on top). Bake for 8-10 minutes. Sprinkle chopped cilantro over the fish and garnish with lime slices.

Yields: 4 servings
