  • 4 6-oz tilapia fillets
  • 2 lightly beaten large eggs
  • 2 oz grated fresh Parmesan cheese
  • 8 lemon wedges
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 cup panko
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


This Parmesan tilapia recipe is so easy and extremely easy to prepare. The prep lasts less than 10 minutes.

Mix the Parmesan cheese, panko breadcrumbs, salt, and pepper together.

In a different dish add the eggs. Get the tilapia fillets and you can start dipping them.

First dip the fillet in the dish with the eggs, then in the one with the breadcrumbs.

Get a skillet and heat 1 tablespoon oil in it. Add the fillets and cook them for 2 to 3 minutes per side. When you’re done with all the fish fillets you can serve them. Add the lemon wedges on the side and bon appetit!
