This is from a cookbook put out by a local elementary school in my town. It's easy and healthy and delicious!

I used this recipe to deconstruct my http://www.food.com/recipe/parmesan-crusted-tilapia-olive-garden-copycat-157080 recipe. This fish turned out fantastic; flakey on the inside and crisp on the outside. I used panko breadcrumbs, which I think helped with the crispiness. I served this on top of the other components of the recipe: alfredo noodles topped with roasted vegetables. It was outstanding!
The fish were pretty tasty. I used Panko crumbs to coat the talapia as suggested by another review. I had to sprinkle more oregano after dipping as the oregano wouldn't stick to fish. After 10 min. of baking the talapia were not at all brown, so I cooked another 5 min. & then put under broiler to brown. I probably should have put under broiler after 10 min. as my fish were a tad dry.
Made this tonight with Striper. I went ahead and mixed the Parmesan cheese in with whole wheat panko bread crumbs and I think that worked well. Recipe didn't specify what to do with the additional 1 tsp olive oil, so I drizzled it on the top before baking. Overall, very good, and I would make this recipe again.
