Ingredients

For the fish

  • Cooking spray
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 Cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 8 Ounces tilapia fillet

For the garlic-dill mayonnaise

  • 1/2 Cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped dill
  • 1/2 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice

For the sandwich

  • 2 whole-wheat hamburger buns
  • 1/2 Cup baby lettuce leaves

Directions

For the fish

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Coat the baking sheet with cooking spray, and set aside.

Liberally coat the fillet in butter, and cover each side evenly with the panko breadcrumbs. Place the fish on the baking sheet, and put into the oven. Bake until the fillet is cooked through and golden brown, about 12-15 minutes.

Remove from the oven, and cut into 2 equally-sized portions.

For the garlic-dill mayonnaise

Mix the mayonnaise, dill, garlic, and lemon juice together in a bowl until blended.

For the sandwich

Lightly toast the hamburger buns, and generously slather each with the mayonnaise. Divide the lettuce leaves equally and place on the bottom slices of each bun. Put the fillets over the lettuce, and add the top buns. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Tilapia Shopping Tip

A fresh fish should not smell fishy nor have milky, opaque eyes; it should have bright red gills, firm flesh, and a tight anal cavity.

Tilapia Cooking Tip

Whole fish should be stored upright in ice in the refrigerator.

Tilapia Wine Pairing

Most white wines (especially albariño) and rosé with most fish dishes. Muscadet, sancerre, or New Zealand sauvignon blanc with cold fish dishes; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, or pinot blanc with grilled or roasted fish; sauvignon blanc or gewürztraminer with baked fish; grüner veltliner with fish pâté; vintage or non-vintage champagne or sparkling wine with light fish dishes; fino or manzanilla with small fried fish; junmai, junmai-ginjo, or junmai-daiginjo with teriyaki fish.
