Broiled Tilapia with Breadcrumbs

Serves 4

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/4 pound tilapia fillets
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Method

Preheat broiler.

Sauté breadcrumbs briefly in 3 tablespoons butter over medium-low heat. Set aside.

Brush baking pan with a bit of oil.

Brush rest of oil on fish and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Place fillets about 4 inches from heat source and cook for about 6 minutes, rotating pan every 2 minutes for evening browning.

Baste fish with drippings from the bottom of the pan and spread on bread crumbs.

Cook an additional 2 minutes, until fish flakes easily and breadcrumbs are browned. Serve with lemon wedges.
