New Recipe

This recipe is awesome – I found it in a random issue of Family Circle that I picked up.  This recipe is quick and easy, most of the ingredients are probably already in your cupboard, and it tastes great!  We followed the recipe tonight, though I put ranch on Peyton’s instead of mustard (He hates mustard).  It worked out well; I bet this would also taste great with chicken.

Makes: 4 servings

Prep: 5 minutes

Bake at 425* for 15 min.

18 ritz crackers

1/4 cup grated parmesan

3 tablespoons olive oil

1/4 teaspoon dried basil

4 tilapia fillets, about 1.5 lbs. total (I used the frozen packaged fillets – they worked great and were easy to thaw)

2 tablespoons dijon mustard

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper (I used 1/8th)

1.  Heat oven to 425*.  Spray a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray

2.  Crush crackers in a plastic bag.  Add cheese, basil and oil.  Shake to combine.

3.  Place tilapia on prepared baking sheet.  Brush top side of each piece with about 1/2 tablespoon of the mustard and season with the salt and pepper.  Press the cracker mixture onto the mustard-coated side of the fillets.

4.  Bake at 425* for 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.  Serve with lemon wedges and tartar sauce if desired.
