Panko Crusted Tilapia with Homemade Tarter Sauce

What is better than crunchy crusted fish? Not much. A few nights ago I made a panko crusted Tilapia with a side of roasted veggies and my homemade tarter sauce. This simple  fish dish is a definite crowd-pleaser. Tilapia is a relatively inexpensive fish with a mild flavor. Tilapia is often used in fish tacos because the flavor can be easily enhanced by other ingredients. To coat my fish, I used mayo instead of an egg wash, which creates a moist tender fish. After the mayo coating, I drugged the fillets in a mixture of panko breadcrumbs, dried basil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper and a pinch of cayenne pepper. I seared the fillets in a non-stick pan coated with a thin layer of butter until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes on each side. I hope you'll enjoy this recipe! 

Check out my fab tarter recipe:

1 cup light sour cream
2-3 tbsp mayo
1/4 cup minced dill pickles
1/4 cup minced red onion
2-3 tsp dijon mustard
2 tsp chopped garlic
3-4 tbsp fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper

Mix all ingredients well. Serve with your favorite fish or seafood dish.
