Crispy Oven-Fried Tilapia

I have been trying to have us eat fish more often.  But I'm not great at seafood dishes, but I hope to get better someday.  I was pursuing my cookbooks and came along this one from Better Homes & Garden.  It sounded delicious & I was super pleased with the result.  I will definitely make this more often, it's simple, has plenty of flavor & crunch.

4 tilapia fillets
1/4 c. milk
1/3 c. flour
1/2 - 2/3 c. regular Panko crumbs
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. Old Bay garlic & herb seasoning
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
3-4 Tbl. butter, melted

1.  Place milk in a shallow dish, flour in another shallow dish.  In a third dish, combine panko crumbs, cheese & spices.  Add melted butter to panko-cheese-spices dish & mix until well combined.
2.  Dip fish in milk; coat with flour.
3.  Dip again in milk, then in crumb mixture to coat all sides.  Place fish on a greased baking sheet.
4.  Bake, uncovered in a 450 degree oven for 4 - 6 minutes per side until fish begins to flake when tested.
