Meatless Friday: Dijon-Onion Tilapia



Don’t let the onions fool you–this fish has a great crispy coating without a strong onion flavor. This is a kid-friendly dish–and kids can even help with the prep!

Dijon Onion Tilapia (9)c 2Dijon-Onion Tilapia

4 pieces of tilapia (about 5 oz. each)
1 1/2 cups Durkee’s Fried Onions, crushed
3 TBL melted butter
5 heaping TBL Dijon mustard

Crush fried onions. You can put them in a bag or dump them into a pie plate, then use the bottom of the measuring cup to smash them (a great job for the kids!)

Cover a baking sheet with foil and brush some olive oil onto the foil to prevent sticking, or use baking parchment.

Combine butter and mustard. Dip fish into butter mix and then into crushed onions. Place on prepared baking sheet.

Bake 25 to 30 minutes at 375.
