Herb Crusted Tilapia


Adapted from Wine Spectator
serves 2

1 Tbsp. minced flat leaf parsley
1 Tbsp. minced basil
1 Tbsp. minced mint
1/4 cup panko
zest from 1/2 of a lemon
2 six ounce fillets, rinsed off and patted dry

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine herbs, panko and lemon zest in a bowl. Drizzle in just enough olive oil to make a paste. Brush fillets on both sides with olive oil, season both sides with salt. Press the herb mixture on to the top of the fillet and place on a non-stick baking sheet, then put in the oven. Cook until fish is done, about 10-13 minutes.

Wine served: Allegrini Soave

  1. The best thing here is that you could use the same breading for any fish (and chicken, too). I’ll be the herbs and lemon lent a wonderful freshness, much needed in the wintertime.
