Panko Crusted Tilapia Fries

Panko Crusted Tilapia Fries

Fried fish strips are one of our favorite meals. But, as we all know, they can be extremely unhealthy. 

Instead of giving up fried fish all together, we’ve come up with a way to enjoy it without having to feel guilty! This recipe uses panko crumbs instead of normal bread crumbs and the recipe is baked, rather than fried. Try it out for yourself!

  4. On a plate, spread out the panko crumbs in an even layer.
  5. Taking one tilapia strip at a time, dip the strip into the margarine mixture and coat it completely.
  6. Then press the skinless side of the strip into the panko crumbs.
  7. Then place the strip skin side down on the baking pan.
