I have really been working hard to get fish on the dinner table at least two times a week. Its such a healthy option that is high in protein, low fat and very satisfying. I just have always hated the smell in my kitchen and to be honest the cost. A good piece of Halibut is now cost in the ball park of $20 per pound. And if you are not comfortable cooking fish you have the fear of destroying the mini investment. I have really enjoyed cooking the Tilapia loins from Costco. they are a less pricey fish, that is a meaty texture that has no fishy-ness at all. Also fast to cook. thaw in fridge the morning of and cooks up on 12-15 minutes in the oven.

Line a baking sheet with heavy aluminum foil. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

lightly coat tops of fish with oil and sprinkle with seasonings, light sprinkle of breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese.

Enjoy with wild rice, your favorite vegetable and or a salad. Mango salsa as a garnish is really nice as well to compliment the fish. So versatile and delicious.
