  • skillet


  • 2 to 4 tilapia fillets healthy cuts at least ½" thick at the center (if you get thinner, reduce the cook time as needed)
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle mayo
  • ¾ - 1 cup chipotle panko breadcrumbs sub regular if needed


  • Preheat the oven to 375. Spray an oven safe skillet or baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Rinse the tilapia fillets and pat them dry.
  • Arrange fillets in the skillet and spread a thin layer of chipotle mayo over each.
  • Press the panko over each making sure it stays in a nice layer.
  • Place in oven and cook for 15-20 minutes, checking doneness with a fork.


Tilapia flakes very easily so use a nice flat and wide spatula to flip it. 
You can substitute any fish, white or pink even, like basa, salmon, halibut, and trout.
