Recipe- Crunchy Baked Tilapia

Tonight I decided to try a recipe from Live Better America.  I decided on Crunchy Baked Tilapia.

~1 lb tilapia filets (3/4 inch thick)
~1 cup Fiber One cereal
~1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
~1/4 teaspoon salt
~1/8 teaspoon pepper
~1/4 cup fat-free (skim) milk
~1 tablespoon olive or canola oil

~1/3 cup Yoplait Greek plain yogurt (from 6-oz container)
~1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
~1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
~1 medium chopped green onion (1 tablespoon)


1) Heat oven to 450 degrees.  Spray bottom of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray.  Cut tilapia into 4 serving pieces.  Place cereal in resealable food-storage plastic bag; seal bag and finely crush with rolling pin or meat mallet (or finely crush in food processor).
2) In shallow blow, mix cereal, basil, salt and pepper.  In another shallow bowl, place milk.  Dip fish pieces into milk, then coat with cereal mixture; place in pan.  Drizzle oil evenly over fish.
3) Bake uncovered 10 to 15 minutes or until fish flakes evenly with fork.
4) Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix all sauce ingredients until blended.  Serve sauce with fish.  If desired, garnish with fresh basil leaves.

Dinner is cooking
I bought vanilla flavored Greek yogurt because at the store they were out of plain (or didn't carry it).  And this made the sauce way too sweet.  When I make the sauce for the leftovers, I'll be adding more Dijon mustard to it.  I also left out the green onions because neither of us like them.  I served it with Green Giant Seasoned Steamers, Mediterranean Blend.

Overall, it was okay.  There was nothing terrible about it, just not enough flavors overall.  I don't think I'll be keeping this recipe in my box.
