Mustard Crusted Tilapia recipe

A couple of people asked for this recipe, so I thought I'd include it before I really forget. I got the Tilapia on a really good sale a month ago, 5 fillets for $1.98, so I got several. It made two dinners for me and Jeff, including a veggie and a whole grain.

2 (6 oz.) fresh tilapia fillets
1 teaspoon spicy brown mustard
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/4 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. fine Italian bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a glass baking dish with cooking spray. Place tilapia fillets into prepared baking dish, and bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, stir together the mustard, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, garlic powder, oregano, and Parmesan cheese.
When fish has cooked for 10 minutes, spread with herb paste, and sprinkle with bread crumbs. Continue baking for another 5 minutes until the topping is bubbly and golden.

  1. Thanks for the comment on my blog, Laura! I stopped by to see what you were all about :)

    Your recipe sounds good, if I liked fish, I'd try it. I'll substitute chicken and let you know how it goes haha :)

  2. I wonder if this would work on catfish. I am going to try it and see because it sounds so good.

  3. I wished I liked tilapia - it kind of has an aftertaste to me? But then again, I am not a huge fish lover either!

    Love the addition of mustard though!
