With how great the Parmesan Crusted Tilapia was last week, I’ve been meaning to try out breading the fish with panko breadcrumbs. My household was never short on breadcrumbs with my favorite being the Italian kind, but I’ve never got around to experimenting with panko.
The breading is also seasoned with Old Bay, a classic go-to seasoning for all seafood which includes a mix of mustard, paprika, celery salt, bay leaf, black pepper, red pepper flakes, mace, cloves, allspice, nutmeg, cardamom and ginger. I have also added some chopped parsley for color and freshness.
The result is a crispy, flaky and gorgeous tasting dish with a complimentary dipping sauce but good enough on its own.
