  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Place tilapia fillets onto a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.

  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake until fish is cooked and can be easily flaked with a fork, about 15 minutes depending on thickness.

  • In a large bowl, add fish and use a fork to flake into small pieces. Add lemon zest, lemon juice, egg, mayonnaise, chives, parsley, and capers, plus salt and pepper.

  • Mix with a fork or spatula to combine. Add breadcrumbs onto a plate or into a dish.

  •  Form fish cakes into 8 equal-sized portions and roll each side of the fish cake into breadcrumbs to coat.

  • Warm 1/2 tablespoon oil in a medium nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add 4 fish cakes and cook until golden-brown, about 2 minutes per side.

  • Transfer to a plate and use remaining 1/2 tablespoon oil to cook the remaining 4 fish cakes.
