Niki's notes for this recipe:
It never ceases to amaze me how fast my kids gobble up this yummy, healthy, baked-not-fried dish.
Tilapia is a very light tasting fish that has a nice texture and with the right preparation, will satisfy even the pickiest little palate.

Mix mayo with dry Ranch dressing pkt.
Combine the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese and pour onto a paper plate, set aside
Using a BBQ brush, cover the fish, on both sides, with the herb mayo {I find this easier if the fish is still partially frozen}
Dredge each piece of fish in the bread crumbs/cheese mixture & place on a greased cookie sheet {Lightly spray the top of the fish with butter flavored spray, before baking, for extra crispiness}
Bake at 375 for 8-12 minutes {thawed} or 20-25 minutes {partially frozen}
When fish “flakes with a fork,” it is usually a bit overcooked and may be dry. This test is better: Using your finger, press on the cooked flesh gently. When it is done, the fibers will separate in solid flakes. If the fibers fall apart, the fish has been cooked too long
