I was at that 'desperate' stage ... end of the paycheck, not much on hand, and had to find SOMEthing for dinner - quickly!
So I thawed out the frozen tilapia filets, and just started creating.
They turned out great! I'm not terribly 'confident' with baking fish, but I will definitely make these again. They were very tasty!

  4. Spread the sauce liberally over the tops of the two fish filets, spreading all the way to the edges.
  5. Sprinkle the bread crumbs evenly over the entire top of the filets.

    Serve with an extra wedge of lime, if you really like the citrus flavor w/ your fish.
