For the Crispy Baked Fish:

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups plain panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • fine ground sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 3 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 ½ pounds sole tilapia or cod fillets, cut into smaller pieces if desired

For the Creamy Dill Sauce:

  • cup sour cream light or regular
  • cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • ¾ teaspoon dried dill weed or 2 tablespoons fresh
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic salt


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with aluminum foil and spray the foil generously with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Place the flour in a wide shallow dish or pie plate. In another similar dish, combine plain panko bread crumbs, Old Bay, garlic powder, parsley, salt, pepper, and olive oil. In a third shallow dish, lightly beat the eggs.
  • Dredge a piece of fish in all-purpose flour, coating both sides. Transfer to a separate piece of foil temporarily. Repeat with remaining pieces of fish.
  • One by one dip the flour coated fish first into the egg, allowing excess to drip back into dish, then into panko mixture, coating both sides of the fish well. Place on the prepared, foil lined baking sheets and repeat the process with the remaining flour coated fish.
  • Bake until lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes, rotating the sheets from top to bottom halfway through the baking time.
  • Serve with the Creamy Dill Sauce and/or cocktail sauce for dipping.

Creamy Dill Sauce:

  • Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
