Crispy Parmesan Baked Fish


Recipe Notes

  • Use leftover cooked fish to make fish tacos or add to salads.


¾ cup plain bread crumbs
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
¼ teaspoon ground thyme
¼ teaspoon onion powder
⅛ teaspoon paprika
¾ cup nonfat or 1% milk
2 pounds fish fillets (try any white fish)


  1. Preheat oven to 500 degrees F. Lightly spray or a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, thyme, onion powder and paprika.
  3. Place crumbs on a flat plate or sheet of wax paper.
  4. Dip the fish fillets in milk then press into the crumb mixture to coat all sides. Discard leftover bread crumbs and milk.
  5. Place fish on the baking sheet in a single layer. Bake until the fish is opaque and flakes easily in the thickest part, about 15 minutes depending on thickness of fish.
  6. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

Wow, my 3 year old and husband ate up all this fish!!! A winning recipe, so tasty and nice and crispy on the edges. We used frozen tilapia, garlic powder instead of onion powder and for the pan I simply covered a cookie sheet with foil and greased the foil. I did have a lot of the milk and breading leftover so my only regret is that I didn't make all my fish as we would have used it.
