Crusted Tilapia Fillets Recipe With Roasted Veggies — Delicious One-Pan Easy Supper

Panko, mayo and capers are the secret to the perfectly crispy coating

Tired of the same old beef and chicken dishes for dinner? Swap out those heavy proteins for a lighter fish option instead. Tilapia is deliciously flaky and can easily be baked, thrown in the air fryer, deep fried or sautéed in a pan — it all depends on what you’re in the mood for! And out Crusted Tilapia Fillets recipe cooks up to perfection on a sheet pan

What’s a little different about this fish dish, specifically, is that the fillets are only topped with panko and not fully coated or breaded. This allows for a flaky, tender inside and crispy crunchy outside. We paired our with carrot and zucchini sticks that bake right alongside the fish for a one-pan easy meal, but feel free to include any veggies of your choice. Let us know your creative twists in the comments below!
