    • 1 Cup Panko Bread Crumbs
    • 2 tsp. Lemon Zest
    • 2 tsp. Orange Zest
    • 1 tsp. Fresh Thyme-chopped
    • 3 Tbsp. Canola Oil
    • 4 Fish Fillets-cod, tilapia, salmon
    •  Salt and Black Pepper

    Preheat oven to 400°f. Combine the bread crumbs, lemon zest, orange zest, and thyme, evenly distributing the seasonings. Drizzle the canola oil all over and evenly mix. The crumbs should just barely hold together when squeezed. More oil may be necessary. Season the crumbs to taste with salt and black pepper.

    Lay the fish fillets on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with vegetable spray, allowing space between them to cook evenly. Top each fish fillet with the bread crumb mixture, covering the top entirely and gently packing down to adhere.

    Bake the fish fillets in the oven for about 15 minutes depending on the thickness of the fish. The center of the fillet should read 145°f or the fish should flake when poked with a fork. Serve with your favorite accompaniments and enjoy!
