DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Put the fresh bread crumbs on a cookie sheet and place them in the oven until they are toasted (3-5 minutes). Take them out and set them aside to cool.
  • Turn the oven up to 425 degrees.
  • Cut the tilapia into slices about one inch thick. (I cut mine on the short side because my kids are small and like small nuggets.).
  • Put the tilapia in a bowl and add the milk. Stir well.
  • In a large ziploc type bag add the toasted bread crumbs, cornmeal, and pepper.
  • Using a slotted spoon, remove the fish from the milk and put the pieces into the bag. Seal it and then shake it up so all the pieces are coated.
  • Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  • Place the nuggets on the baking sheet. Sprinkle the tops with salt.
  • Bake until the fish flakes easily with a fork, 15-25 minutes.
