Crunchy Baked Tilapia

Yum! That's all I need to say about this recipe. It is delicious, and super easy! I love cooking fish because it takes no time at all. I got this recipe from a fellow blogger (link below) and it was a definite success. My boys ate it, especially since I told them it had Ritz crackers on top, and my husband raved about it. Delicious. Please try it. Don't be scared of fish, it is so easy to prepare!

Crunchy Baked Tilapia
adapted from Baking and Creating with Avril

3 fillets of Tilapia
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter, cut into small slices
3/4 tsp garlic salt
Freshly ground pepper
dried parsley
1 fresh lemon or 2 TBSP lemon juice
12 Ritz crackers, crushed (I used whole wheat.)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Spray baking dish with nonstick spray. (I usually use a 9x13 glass baking dish for this recipe.) Drizzle each fillet with olive oil.

Sprinkle each fillet with 1/4 tsp garlic salt and freshly ground pepper. Sprinkle parsley on top of each fillet and then top with crushed Ritz crackers. I used 4 crackers per fillet. Squeeze lemon over fish or drizzle lemon juice over top. Top with butter dabs and place in preheated oven.

Bake for 12 minutes at 375 degrees, or until fish is cooked through and flakes easily with a fork.
