Parmesan Lime Tilapia Filets Recipe @pinch

A quick and flavorful fish dinner made (mostly) with ingredients found in your spice cabinet. A creamy mayo mixture is slightly tangy from lime juice. Lime adds a touch of freshness and mingles nicely with the dill, parsley, and other seasonings. The mayo mixture coats the tilapia acts as glue for the bread crumbs, and helps seal in all the flavor. We serve the flaky tilapia with roasted potatoes and green beans, but a simple salad would be perfect with this, too. I was at that 'desperate' stage... end of the paycheck, not much on hand, and had to find something for dinner - quickly. So I thawed out the frozen tilapia filets and just started creating. They turned out great! I'm not terribly 'confident' with baking fish, but I will definitely make these again. They were very tasty.
