Herb-Crusted Tilapia for Two


  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 2 tilapia fillets (about 3/4 pound)

  • 1 large egg, plus 1 tablespoon water

  • 2 tbsp mixed herbs

  • 1/2 cup panko (Japanese-style breadcrumbs)

  • 1 tbsp olive oil


Sprinkle flour on waxed paper. Rub fillets with flour.

Beat egg with water in a shallow dish.

On a separate sheet of waxed paper or in a shallow dish, mix panko with herbs. Dip floured fillets in egg wash and roll in herb-panko mixture, patting it gently so that it sticks to the fish.

Heat oil in a nonstick frying pan over medium-high heat. Sauté fish about 3 minutes. Turn once and cook for another 3 minutes, or until it reaches an internal temperature of 145°F. Serve immediately.
