I want to kick off this recipe with a Happy Holidays to everyone and I know its been awhile since I have posted a recipe but sometimes life just gets in the way, not of cooking but of blogging. This holiday season as always involves a lot of food and plenty of added pounds that I will need the whole month of January to burn off. I decided to share a great tilapia recipe that was a big hit over the holiday season.This recipe will add a bit of spice and if that is not something that you enjoy like I do then leave out the crushed chili flakes or just add a pinch to the recipe. You will need to make sure to rub the olive oil mixture all over the fish and make sure to let it stand a few minutes at room temperature in a large bowl. The bread crumbs should include an Italian blend and fresh parmesan would be great but if you do not have any on hand then use the parmesan in a container you can buy at all grocery chains. You can also bake a bit longer for extra crunchy fish.
