Whisk together bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, seasoned salt, black pepper, celery salt, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, parsley, and basil in a bowl.

Spray bread crumb mixture with cooking spray until damp, then whisk bread crumbs. Repeat spraying and whisking 3 more times to lightly moisten crumb mixture with cooking spray.

Transfer crumb mixture to a large resealable plastic bag.

Gently press tilapia fillets into the flour to coat, and shake off the excess flour.

Dip the fillets into the ranch dressing mixture.

Place all the fillets into the resealable plastic bag; seal bag and shake to coat fish with bread crumb mixture.

Arrange tilapia on prepared baking sheet. Lightly spray the breaded fish with cooking spray.

Bake in the preheated oven until the fish is easily flaked with a fork, 20 to 25 minutes.
