If you don't have a baking rack, line a baking sheet with foil and coat with cooking spray. Increase baking time by 2 minutes, and turn the fillets after 7 minutes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 425°.

Step 2

Place a wire rack on a large baking sheet. Coat rack with cooking spray. Place cereal in a large zip-top bag; roll with a rolling pin until crushed. Place crushed cereal, rind, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a shallow dish. Combine juice and egg in a shallow dish, stirring with a whisk.

Step 3

Sprinkle fish evenly with 1/4 teaspoon pepper and salt. Dip fish in egg mixture; dredge in cereal mixture. Arrange fish on prepared rack; bake at 425° for 12 minutes or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

Step 4

Combine remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper, pineapple, ketchup, and soy sauce in the bowl of a mini food processor; process until smooth. Serve ketchup mixture with fish sticks.

Agree with the previous reviewer.  We did not enjoy the combo of the cornflakes and the tilapia nor the pineapple and ketchup.  Will not make again.

This was a solid recipe. I was nervous about the pineapple ketchup, but it was actually really good!

My husband was OK with this one, but I really did not care for it. The ketchup was odd-tasting to me, and the crumb coating added an unpleasant flavor to the fish.

Easy enough for my 7 year old son to help me make them. They are delicious he actually ate it!

This was a good recipe. I kept the tilapia fillets whole rather than cutting them into pieces because I was afraid the delicate fish would fall apart. I would advise crushing the cornflakes to a fine consistency to improve their adherence to the fish. The pineapple ketchup was good.
