Parmesan and Wasa Crusted Tilapia

parmesan and wasa crusted tilapia recipeDo you ever have a night when the kids get home from soccer practice late, the living room is a mess, laundry is everywhere and you really just want order a pizza and call it all good? This happens to me more often than I’d like to admit. But truthfully, I am tired of pizza. And every other restaurant within a 5 mile radius of my home. I am trying really hard to get out of the habit of not eating at home. The thing is, there was a time when we ate all of our meals at home. I miss those days. I really want to get back there.

I do a lot better when I have a plan. I like to sit down with a stack of magazines and my favorite cookbooks and plan out what we are going to eat for the week. When I do this we eat well. We eat healthy. I really am trying to eat more fish. I know that it is good for us and it takes no time to cook. That’s a win-win. I was making a crusted tilapia and realized that I did not have any panko crumbs. I did have a package of Wasa. I crushed them and used them instead and the result was crispy and light. And full of whole grain. Even better than my panko. Dinner was ready in less than 20 minutes from start to finish. Faster than it takes to get a pizza.

    I think we all hove those nights. I know they happen more than I’d like here and we way too much cold cereal. I used to eat a bunch of Wasa crackers when I lived in California. I like to top them with cream cheese, arugula, sliced tomato and a good pinch of kosher salt!

    What a neat idea! It’s like an episode of Chopped… “In your box, you have: tilapia, parmesan, and Wasa crackers… You have 30 minutes to make an entree…. ready, GO!”

    Delish! My quick meal go-to is always grilled chicken. I think I need to throw some fish into the mix!
