Bagel Chip Crusted Tilapia

Wow is all I can say about the fish, it will definitely stay in the rotation, it was so very good! I served it with the rice, green beans and some focaccia bread! This came from Sam's Club they were giving away samples!

3/4 cup crushed Bagel Chips
2 Tbsp lemon pepper seasoning
6 Tbsp olive oil (divided)
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 Tbsp parsley flakes
4 tilapia fillets

Mix the bagel chips and lemon pepper seasoning in a bowl. Coat the tilapia fillets with 3 Tbsp olive oil and coat generously with the bagel chip mixture. Heat the other 3 Tbsp olive oil in saute pan on medium-high heat. Cook tilapia on both sides for 3 minutes (until internal temp reaches 160). Sprinkle the fish with the lemon juice and top with the parsley flakes. Serve.

Kraft Pamesan Rice (this has been changed very much by myself)

2 cups White Rice (it called for Uncle Bens converted rice)
2 cups water
1/3 cup canned mushrooms chopped
2 Tbsp butter or margarine
1 Tbsp sea salt (too much with the italian seasoning, I will probably omit next time)
1 tsp italian seasoning
1/2 cup parmesan cheese (will probably do more next time)

Cook rice on stove top according to directions on box. Take off the heat and stir in mushrooms, butter, salt, italian seasoning and parmesan cheese.

Okay this was very good rice, very flavorful!
