Crunchy Oven Fried Tilapia

One of the few types of fish I like.  The first time I ever had tilapia was in Uganda!

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/4 tsp salt


2 egg whites

1 lb tilapia fillets

1/4 cup dried bread crumbs

1/4 cup cornmeal

1/2 tsp dried basil, crushed

1. Heat oven to 450.

2. Sift or stir flour, salt, and pepper together in a shallow dish; set aside. In a bowl, beat egg whites until white and frothy. In another bowl, combine bread crumbs with cornmeal and basil.

3. To bread the fillets, dip first into flour, shaking off any excess, then into egg whites, then into bread crumb mixture.

4. Spray a shallow baking dish with Pam. Lay fillets flat in the dish, tucking any thinner ends or edges for more even cooking. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
