Panko Crusted Tilapia

Looking for a quick delicious dinner? This recipe is perfect.  I was craving fish and was looking for a new way to make it.   I had bought some Panko a few weeks ago, so I thought this was a perfect opportunity to use it.  So there you go, Panko Crusted Tilapia.   What I liked about this recipe was that it was very easy and quick to make. Pretty much combine, coat and bake!  Everything within 1 hour.  The fish is flavorful, flakey and moist.  It was definitely a hit with the boyfriend since he got up for a second serving.   Serve it was some Roasted Asparagus and some Couscous for a perfect weekday dinner.
