  • 4 fresh tilapia filets
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons brown butter
  • 1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 garlic clove, minced or pressed
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil


  • Add breadcrumbs to a small saucepan over medium heat and toast until golden, about 3-4 minutes. Turn off heat and immediately stir in garlic, dried basil and 1 tablespoon of brown butter. Set aside.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season tilapia with salt and pepper.
  • Add coconut oil to the skillet and once melted, add in tilapia. Cook 2-3 minutes per side, or until slightly golden or opaque. Remove from heat. Right before serving, drizzle with remaining brown butter and breadcrumbs.
