  1. Put bread crumbs into a shallow dish.
  2. Gently press tilapia fillets into bread crumbs to coat. Gently toss between your hands so any bread crumbs that haven't stuck can fall away. Place the breaded tilapia onto a plate while breading the rest; do not stack.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Cook tilapia in hot oil until golden brown, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer cooked fillets to a plate.
  5. Top each fillet with salsa; cook in microwave to get the salsa hot, about 15 seconds.

I made this tonight with a few modifications... I used coconut oil and granulated garlic. Topped with homemade salsa and paired with a pasta salad. Delish!

Easiest fish recipe, great for a quick weeknight dinner. Though I will admit that my "pan fried" version was actually baked... Delicious and healthy result.

Delicious! I thought 4 minutes each side was a little much. I cooked them only 2 minutes on each side. It turned out perfect! I substituted salsa for a little cheddar cheese. Amazing!!
