My bff made this recipe up and I have tweaked it a little. It is delish and easy. Even if you are not a huge feta fan (I am not and neither is hunnby) you have to try this. Hubby requests is at least once a week.

How to Make Feta crusted tilapia


  1. In a small bowl combine panko, butter, garlic, shallots and feta. Mash with a fork to make a consistency similar to a crumbly paste.
  2. Sprinkle salt, pepper and dill on both sides of uncooked tilapia. Spoon the panko mixture on top of the tilapia and press it down flat to cover most (if not all) of one side of the fish.
  3. Lay topped filets on a baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Bake at 375 for 12-15 mins. Broil for 3-5 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the fish is cooked through.
