"Fish are our friends, not food." Every time I eat fish, I think of that scene from Finding Nemo when the sharks are trying to stop eating fish. That movie cracks me up! But here in my world, fish are food! I found this great recipe on Recipezaar, and as usual, I made changes to "lighten" it up. It was very good my way, so I can only imagine how good it would have been with drizzled butter and extra Parmesan cheese. If you want the original recipe, it is #32478 on Recipezaar. I will give you my version!
1 cup dry breadcrumbs
1/2 tsp. sage
3/4 tsp. oregano
3/4 tsp. basil
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder (of course)
3/4 tsp. lemon pepper
1/2 cup lemon juice
fish fillets (I used Tilapia)
I poured some lemon juice in a bowl and dipped my fish in it. Then in another bowl, I combined all the spices and the bread crumbs. Coat the fish and place it in a 9x13 pan sprayed with cooking spray. I lightly sprinkled some parmesan cheese on top, then sprayed the fish with the cooking spray.
Bake at 500 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until the fish is flaky.
It is only 3 points for a 3 oz. piece of fish.
*Just a note - I never measure my spices out - I just the palm of my hand, so I'm sure I put in more spices than called for.
This fish was excellent! I had some left overs for lunch today and it was still really good.
