Baked Breaded Tilapia

This recipe will take less time to cook than it does to heat up the Big Green Egg, but it will be worth the effort (as is EVERY BGE experience). Works with ANY white fish probably, we just eat Tilapia in our home.

4-6 Tilapia Filets Depends on how hungry you are!
½ Cup Breadcrumbs
¼ tsp Garlic Pepper Big Green Egg Brand
½ tsp Sea Salt Fresh Ground
1 Tbs Lemon Juice Fresh Squeezed Lemon
¼ cup Light Mayonnaise
¼ cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese Kraft
1/8 cup Parsley Fresh chopped or flakes if you must!
Wax Paper
Shallow Pan (round or square) Sized to fit the BGE
Optional - Byron's Butt Rub replaces all the above including the breadcrumbs

Preparation DirectionsUse FRESH tilapia from the butcher shop
Using a non-stick vegetable spray (cooking spray) lightly spray a shallow pan (round or square)
Mix all ingredients together in a small mixing bowl
Rub the ingredients on one side of tilapia filets
Combine bread crumbs and parsley and spread on Wax Paper
Press Tilapia in crumbs and place in cooking pan, crumb side up

Cooking Directions
Preheat and stabilize the Big Green Egg to 450 degrees.
Place tilapia in the pan with crumb side up.
Place on BGE and cook approximately 10-15 minutes or until bread crumbs brown (time depends on thickness of tilapia filets)
