Lemony Tilapia Fish Sticks

Lemony Tilapia Fish Sticks – panko breadcrumbs + tilapia + lemon = healthy and delicious dinner for only 214 calories a serving.

Every once in a while I get in the mood for fish. Not often, I’m not a big fish eater, though I do like lobster and sushi and all that. But fish not so much. I do know that fish is good for you though, especially tilapia. It’s such a lean fish, very high in protein and just good for you. It’s not fishy at all, that’s why I love this fish.

There are so many ways to cook tilapia, but why not bake them and save yourself some calories. This is a very simple recipe and a perfect opportunity for me to cook with panko breadcrumbs again. You dip in flour, egg then panko. Super simple and you can have a healthy dinner in 35 minutes. Perfect meal for a busy week night.

  • 2 cups panko breadcrumbs
