  • 2 tablespoons fresh dill, snipped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 (6-ounce) tilapia fillets
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • lemon wedges, optional, to taste, for serving

Directions

Step 4 –Place the fillets on the prepared pan and brush with the lemon juice.

Step 5 –Evenly top the tilapia filets with the breadcrumb mixture, patting to help it adhere to the fish.

Step 7 –Serve with the lemon wedges.
