Makes: 4 servings
Prep: 20 mins
Bake: 25 mins
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- Salt and pepper
- 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
- 3 tablespoons EVOO
- 1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes cut into 1/2-inch by-2-inch-sticks
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1 egg, beaten
- 12 ounces tilapia, cut into 8 pieces
- Position a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat to 450 degrees . In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, mustard and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper. On a rimmed baking sheet, combine the panko with 1 tablespoon EVOO and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Spread evenly and bake, tossing occasionally, until golden, about 5 minutes; transfer to a shallow bowl.
- On the rimmed baking sheet, toss the sweet potatoes with the remaining 2 tablespoons EVOO; season with salt and pepper. Arrange in a single layer and bake on the upper rack, turning once, until brown and tender, about 20 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a shallow bowl, combine the flour and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Pour the egg into another shallow bowl. Working with 2 pieces at a time, coat the tilapia in the flour mixture, dip in the egg, then coat in the breadcrumbs, pressing to adhere. Place on a baking sheet and bake until cooked through, about 10 minutes. Serve the fish with the dipping sauce and sweet potato fries.
