Baked tilapia with lots of spice

This is an awesome recipe.  Really quick fish dish.  I made some orzo and placed the fish on top of it.  You can find the recipe

Ingredients: In a small container combine the following spices:
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon onion powder
3/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon basil
3/4 teaspoon basil
3/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2 tilapia fillets
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
3 tablespoons diced green onions
1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
1 tablespoon olive oil
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees
In a small bowl combine the spices.
In a shallow container mix the bread crumbs, dried parsley, and green onions.
Measure 4 teaspoons of the spice mix and sprinkle that over the fillets
Add remaining spice mix the the bread crumbs, mixing well. Add the olive oil to the bread crumb mix, blending it with your hands.
Dredge the fish in the breadcrumbs, coating well. I covered one side really well.
Place the fish on a baking pan that has been covered with parchment paper and sprayed with non-stick spray.
Bake 450 degrees for 15 minutes. The original recipe says to bake 6 minutes, turn and bake 4 minutes, turn and bake an additional 4 minutes. Baking it 15 minutes without turning makes all of the breading stay on the fish.
