Baked Tilapia Scampi

Recipe created by Jenn's Food Journey

Ingredients:
juice of half a lemon
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
4 garlic cloves, finely minced
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon dried oregano (I might add a tad bit more if I made this again???)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 teaspoon Country Bob's Honey Habanero Sauce (optional)
4 tilapia fillets (or any white fish)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.  Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.  Rinse the fish and pat dry; place in prepared baking dish.  Squeeze lemon juice over the fillets.

In a small bowl, mix together the melted butter, garlic cloves, olive oil, and oregano.  In another small bowl, mix together the bread crumbs and the salt and pepper.  Pour 2 tablespoons of the butter mixture over the bread crumb mixture and stir to combine (the bread crumbs will be moist).  Add the honey habanero sauce to the butter mixture if using.  Pour the remaining butter over the fish and then top with the bread crumb mixture.  Place in over and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the fish flakes easily with a fork and the bread crumbs start to brown.  Carefully remove from oven and enjoy!
