  1. Place the bread crumbs in a bowl. In a shallow dish, mix the dressing mix and oil to form a paste. Coat the tilapia fillets with the paste, then dredge in the bread crumbs to lightly coat.
  2. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Place the fillets in the skillet, and cook 5 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and easily flaked with a fork.

My husband and I loved this recipe! I hate to be that annoying I-changed-everything-in-the-recipe person - but I did make a few changes. To the bread crumb/ranch mixture I added coarse ground pepper and crushed red pepper flakes (my husband is Cajun and loves hot food). We aren't fans of frying so we baked ours on 375 for 25-30 minutes. Will definitely be adding this to our dinner rotation.



This recipe was fantastic! I took the advice of a few others and changed it a little bit though. I dredged the fish in flour, then egg whites, then the breading mixture (bread crumbs & ranch mix only). And instead of frying it, I sprayed a baking dish with Pam and baked it. It turned out wonderfully. My boyfriend even rated it top 5 meals I've ever made!

This was SOOO GOOD! And very easy and quick to make! The only thing I did differently was to bake it instead of frying. I baked at 400 for 25 minutes. The edges were a little too done so next time I'll only cook it for about 20 minutes. Oh and don't forget to coat your baking dish or it will stick. :) Definitely a keeper!
