Crunchy Oven-Fried Fish

Yeah, I got tired of trying to come up with "titles" so I figured I'd just use the name of the entree for the day.

Crunchy Oven-Fried Fish

1/4 c all-purpose flour
3 egg whites
1/3 c fat-free mayonnaise
2 T all-purpose flour
3/4 t paprika
1/2 t garlic powder
4 high-fiber crispbreads (Wasa)
1 1/2 t olive oil
1/4 t salt
1/4 t pepper
8 (3 oz each) tilapia fillets
1/4 t salt
1/4 t pepper

Preheat oven to 425. Place large rack in large rimmed baking pan; spray rack with Pam. Place 1/4 c all-purpose flour on sheet of wax paper. Beat 3 egg whites in shallow bowl until frothy; whisk in fat-free mayonnaise, 2 T all-purpose flour, paprika and garlic powder. Crush Wasa crispbreads into fine crumbs; transfer to pie plate. Add olive oil, 1/4 t salt and 1/4 t pepper; toss well until crumbs are evenly moistened. Sprinkle tilapia fillets with 1/4 t salt and 1/4 t pepper. Working with 1 fillet at a time, coat both sides with flour, tapping off excess; then dip in mayonnaise mixture and then in crumbs, pressing to adhere. Transfer prepared fillet to rack. Bake fillets until firm and coating is browned, about 20 minutes.

Yield: 4 servings (2 fillets each) at 6 PointsPlus each.
