Ritzy Tilapia

I spent some time this week looking through a VERY OLD binder of recipes that I had accumulated from magazines, newspapers and other sources. So many options, so little time. I did immediately pick out this one though, and made it the next night since I had everything on hand. Tilapia is so versatile and this simple preparation makes it even better. And it's also quick. Dinner can be on the table in no time flat - a perfect weeknight win.

Even picky eaters who say they don't like fish will enjoy this dish. Sometimes those old binders can deliver a great surprise. I'm so glad I found this recipe; I know it will become one of our favorite ways to make fish.

Ritzy Tilapia

14 Ritz crackers
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp. olive oil
3/4 tsp. basil
4 tilapia fillets, 4-6 oz. each
2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

Crush crackers. Combine crackers, cheese and olive oil and basil. Place tilapia on a lightly greased baking sheet. Brush tops of fish with mustard and season with salt and pepper. Press the cracker mixture on top of each fillet.

Bake at 425 for 10-15 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish. Fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork. Serves 4.
