Baked Crispy Tilapia Fillet

Now it's a Recipe time. In the recent weeks suddenly our car needed to visit the car service station due to some internal problem. Though it's quite annoying and frustrating if the check engine light starts to blink, for me it became a healthy boon. During the time the car got checked I confronted with a great recipe idea from one of the magazines lazily laid around the center table of the sitting area of the store. Nowadays I am proned towards making healthy recipes mainly where a wee bit of oil or no oil is added at all. I found a recipe of crispy chicken nuggets which is coated with cornflakes and more pleasingly it's Baked. I borrowed the idea, googled for more recipes alike after coming home. The next day I made this Baked Crispy Tilapia Fillet. I never thought even in my imagination that Fish Fry can also be made with out oil. To be true you will not get the exact pleasure and taste what a deep fried stuff enhances, but I bet too you will not regret after tasting it. More good is you will never suffer from the nightmare that next how much calories you have to shed. You can have it as a starter or as a  dinner  with some dips and salads. Following is the recipe:
Recipe adapted from Cooks.com


Ingredients:-

Marinade:

Tilapia Fillets- 3 large
Ranch/Salad dressings- 2 tbspoon
Vinegar/Lemon juice- 1 tbspoon
Mayonnaise- 1 tbspoon
Parmesan Cheese- 3 tbspoon
Salt+pepper+Italian herbs- According to taste


Coating:
Cornflakes- Approx 2 cups (crumbs) [Note: I will suggest to make extra crumbs and not to use all at same time. The extras can be saved and used later if stored in a airtight container.]
Bread Crumbs- 1/2 cup

Method:-
1. Pre-heat the oven at 350F degrees.
2. Mix all the ingredients nicely with the fillets, listed under marinade and keep for 10-15mnts.
3. Put a silver foil on the baking tray and grease it nicely. (lining foils make easy to clean the tray.)
4. Mix the cornflakes and the bread crumbs and coat the fish gently. Lay them on the tray. Now spread some crumbs on the top of each fillet and press it little bit with your palm. Gently turn each fillet and do the same process.
5. Bake for 10-15mnts. Then turn the fillets and bake for 10 mnts more.Serve hot with bread, salads or dips.
Variation:
I also tired with chicken. I marinated the chicken breasts with Shan's tandoori Chicken masala and yoghurt and coated them with cornflakes and bread crumbs. Baked them at 375F degrees for 35-40mnts. This one also came out perfect and too tasty.

Note: I am not satisfy at all with the snaps. The snaps are taken in a hurry struggling a lot with the hungry tummies. Hope you can understand.

I've never been a big fish fan, but in recent history I've really come to love Tilapia. This sounds wonderful and print worthy for sure!
