Baked Tilapia With Cajun Crumb topping
4 to 6 tilapia fillets – thawed
1 cup soft fresh bread crumbs
4 tablespoons butter, divided
1 ½ teaspoons Cajun seasoning
Pinch dried thyme
½ teaspoon salt
Dash ground black pepper
Heat oven to 400 F.
Spray non-stick oil a large shallow baking dish.
Arrange thawed fish fillets on the prepared baking pan. Brush with 1 tablespoon of the melted butter. Combine the remaining butter with the soft bread crumbs and seasonings. Sprinkle the crumbs over the tilapia fillets.
Bake the fish for 10 to 15 minutes or until fish is cooked thoroughly. Fish will be opaque and will flake easily with a fork when done.
Carefully remove the fillets to plates with a spatula.
Serve with spicy cooked rice like Vigo yellow rice or dirty rice.
