Baja Style Crispy Baked Tilapia for Tacos

Submitted by: STALEAN

Introduction

My recipe for Baja Style Fish Tacos. Add toppings, slaw, and corn tortillas separately to complete the meal (don't forget to add the extra nutrition facts) or add to a salad. I made these this evening for dinner--they were so good and without the added oil from deep frying. My recipe for Baja Style Fish Tacos.

Directions

Slightly beat egg white with **spices and oil. Add cubed Tilapia to mixture; let sit refrigerated for 15 minutes. *Mix together panko, corn flake crumbs and masa corn flour. Toss marinated fish with crumbs. Spray a large cookie sheet or jelly roll pan with vegetable spray or line with parchment paper (best way) and spray with vegetable spray. Add fish in single layer to pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 14 minutes; cook until golden brown and done, may need less or more cooking time depending on thickness of fish.

*You may add extra spices to the crumb coating if desired for extra flavor/spice. The nutrition facts indicate less crumbs and flour than listed in the ingredient list. This is because not all of the crumb mixture is used up when coating the fish, thus the nutrition facts would be inaccurate.

**When I can find this flavor, I am going to substitute McCormick's Grill Mates Baja Citrus Marinade (1/2 package) for the spices and Ponzu to see how that tastes.
