Panko Crusted Tilapia

WOW this was GOOD! I bought this fish from Costco. I used some and froze the rest. I had 4 big pieces to use up tonight and I wanted something different so I went Googling to see what I could find. My kids ate this like it was their last meal. The loved it! Of course, by the time I fed the kids and got to eat mine (and take pictures), it was cold. But still delicious. I'm used to eating cold food. This is nothing new for me and I've learned to accept it!

Makes 4 servings

1 1/2 cups panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup dried parsley flakes
1/3 cup mustard (I used regular yellow, but you could use dijon)
1/3 cup mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
4 tilapia fillets
butter and oil for frying

In a dish, combine bread crumbs and parsley flakes.

In another dish, combine mustard, mayo and spices.

Coat the fish with the mustard mixture then coat with the breadcrumbs.

Heat a little butter and olive oil in a nonstick pan over medium high heat. I fried 2 pieces of fish at a time, but it'll depend on the size of your fish and the size of your pan. Cook the fish for about 4 minutes on one side then flip it (add more butter and oil if needed) and cook on the other side for another 4 minutes or until cooked through. It'll flake easily with a fork.

Serve with rice and yogurt.
