Baked Tilapia

This quick and easy baked tilapia makes a nutritious and delicious meal. Tilapia is one of my family's favorite types of fish. Serve the tilapia with baked or fried potatoes and homemade hushpuppies.

Baked Tilapia
--4 to 6 tilapia fillets, about 1 1/2 pounds
--Salt and pepper
--1 cup soft fresh bread crumbs
--1 tsp paprika
--3 tablespoons melted butter (I use low-fat margarine)
--lemon or lime juice

Heat oven to 400°.
Lightly grease a large shallow baking dish. Arrange fish fillets on the prepared baking pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Stir the paprika into the butter, then combine with the bread crumbs and lightly toss. Sprinkle the crumbs over the tilapia fillets.

Bake the fish fillets for 15 to 18 minutes, or until fish is cooked through. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes to brown the topping. Fish will flake easily with a fork when done. Remove the fillets to plates with a spatula. Squeeze a dash of lemon or lime juice over each fillet. Serves 4.

Yummy!! It's what's for dinner tonight.
