Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

I'm not a big fan of fish.  The scales, skin, eyes, smell usually gives me the heebie-jeebies.


That being said, I love tilapia.  Tilapia has a mild taste and you can usually find "clean" (ie minus all the things that freak me out!)  tilapia at the grocery store.  Because of the mild flavor, marinades/crusts for tilapia can easily be interchanged with chicken.



Parmesan Crusted Tilapia
(serves 6; recipe found on Pinterest)

1 cup parmasean (I used a mix of shave and powdered) 
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic salt
1 Tbs parsley
dash red pepper flakes 
Olive Oil

Directions 

Preheat oven to 400
Mix cheese and spices in a small bowl.  Once mixed, pour into a large plate. Coat fish with olive oil and cover in cheese mixture. Bake for 10-12 minutes until fish is white in middle


ENJOY!!

  7. Made this tonight with some specialty garlic infused olive oil. Delicious! I eyeballed the amounts for the spices and added some black pepper. Some of the best fish I've made. Can't wait to make it again!

    1. a dash is a measurement. it's less than 1/4 tsp, more like a quick sprinkle but feel free to add more if you'd like.

    1. You could do anything you like. I would do rice, quinoa or couscous.

      It's your dinner though, if you love noodles and mashed potatoes by all means- enjoy!
