  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Line an 11-17-inch baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly spray with cooking spray.
  3. Mix milk and ranch dressing in a shallow bowl. Place flour in a separate shallow bowl; set aside.
  4. Whisk together bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, seasoned salt, black pepper, celery salt, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, parsley, and basil in a bowl.
  5. Spray bread crumb mixture with cooking spray until damp, then whisk bread crumbs. Repeat spraying and whisking 3 more times to lightly moisten crumb mixture with cooking spray.
  6. Transfer crumb mixture to a large resealable plastic bag.
  7. Gently press tilapia fillets into the flour to coat, and shake off the excess flour.
  8. Dip the fillets into the ranch dressing mixture.
  9. Place all the fillets into the resealable plastic bag; seal bag and shake to coat fish with bread crumb mixture.
  10. Arrange tilapia on prepared baking sheet. Lightly spray the breaded fish with cooking spray.
  11. Bake in the preheated oven until the fish is easily flaked with a fork, 20 to 25 minutes.

With the problems with not having a ranch taste, I used dry ranch with Panko bread crumbs with some Tony's more spice. I did not use cooking spray except on the pan where I placed the fish. Re...

The BEST! My husband, my 3.5 year old, and I gobbled this up. I used olive oil instead of cooking spray. And I omitted the celery salt (don't have any). I have been using for ...

Very good flavor that doesn't overpower the taste of the tilapia. Thanks!

This was absolutely delicious! And highly recomend it! It's easy and delicious. I put just a bit extra ranch and it was a perfect amount, a good balance. Also used olive oil instead of spray and...
