Baked Tilapia

Tilapia is an easy fish, you can bake it, grill it, broil it, or cook it in foil packs. You can bread it, encrust it, fry it, cover it in sauce or salsa, etc. There are so many different ways to make it. My favorite is baked. I know from the title of this dish, it doesn't sound too interesting, but I promise it's delicious. Plus it's easy, quick, and semi-healthy (well minus the butter). I don't measure anything for this dish, it's all by eye, so I guesstimated the measurements for you.

4 - 6 pieces Tilapia
1/4 - 1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/8 - 1/4 Parmesan cheese
Juice of 1/2 lemon
3 - 4 tablespoons butter
1/2 - 1 tablespoon minced garlic
salt, pepper, Old Bay seasoning to taste

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Spray baking dish with cooking spray.
Place tilapia in single layer in dish.
Sprinkle with salt, pepper, Old Bay seasoning.
Put butter, lemon juice, and garlic in small saucepan and heat until butter is melted.
Pour mixture over tilapia.
Sprinkle Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs on top.
Cover with foil and bake 8 - 10 minutes.
Remove foil and bake an additional 5 minutes.
