Tortilla Crusted White Fish
2 frozen fish fillets (cod, halibut, tilapia, pangasius…)
¼ cup lime juice (about 1 lime)
2 Tbsp. Tortilla Crumb Breading  *see recipe

Preheat oven to 450° F.  Line baking sheet with foil and/or or parchment paper.  Pour Tortilla Crumb Breading into a Ziploc bag.  Rinse ice off of the fish with cold water.  Dip the fish into lime juice, put into plastic bag, and shake to coat with crumbs.  Place the coated fish on the lined baking sheet and bake for 18–25 minutes on middle rack until fish is flaky (times will vary depending on size and thickness of the fish). 

Serves 2.
