"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)
black pepper
3/4 tsp. lemon pepper
1/2 cup lemon juice
parmesan cheese
cooking spray
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. 


  1. Mmmmmm-looks good. Wish I had the desire to cook different things!

  2. Does look yummy. I might try this one if I can find my fish. Adrion is doing weight watchers so he would love that it is good and only 3 points. He is so adorable. His ab circle pro machine came today and he is trying so hard. I am wondering if there is a little girl in the picture, but I am not asking, just glad he wants to get healthy.

  3. I am a sucker for grilled, baked or pan fried fish...this looks wonderful...I need to go and get me some luch now!!! My tummy is a rumblin'!!

  4. I bought a 1 1/2 pound pkg of Tilapia at Aldi today for 3.99. Now I know what I'm going to do with it. Thanks Rhonda!
