I don't remember where I got this recipe from but is is lower cal that most. You can also bake but the crust is much better when you pan-fry.

Very good! I was a little concerned about the mustard taste being overwhelming, but it wasn't at all. It gave an interesting, but very good, flavor to the fish. I sprinkled the fish with salt and pepper before coating with mustard. I didn't measure the ingredients but just used what was necessary. I tried to use the least amount of olive oil as possible.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Coat Tilapia fillets in Dijon mustard.
  2. Then dip in panko to coat.
  3. Heat oil in skillet on med/high - I try to use as little as I can get away with.
  4. Pan Fry fillets until golden brown on both sides.
  5. Try to turn fillets only once since Tilapia is delicate and can fall apart.
  6. Season with salt and pepper while still hot.
