Recipe: Baked Tilapia with Smoked Salmon Spread
There was a twinge of spice from the Cajun seasoning, and sweetness from both the fish and the mayonnaise base of the smoked salmon spread. The toasted crumbs on top provided the ideal crispness to complement the tender tilapia. Some things are just meant to be ....
- 4 4-ounce tilapia filets
- 3/4 cup smoked salmon spread
- half of 1 whole wheat hamburger bun, ground into fresh breadcrumbs
- sprinkling of seasoned salt
- sprinkling of lemon pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease a 9-inch pie pan.
Place the tilapia into the pie pan. Spread each filet with salmon spread, then sprinkle the bread crumbs over everything. Sprinkle lightly with the seasoned salt and lemon pepper.
Bake for 15 minutes, in the top 1/3 of the oven, until the bread crumbs are toasted.
