I seriously sat here for about 10 minutes trying to figure out what to call this recipe. There are tons of Parmesan crusted or Lemon and herb tilapia recipes. Levi got us these gorgeous filets from Smiths today and I just kept thinking of delicious things to put on top! So here is a lemon herb Parmesan crusted tilapia. It is simply amazing! It was so flaky and tender, and flavor has so many different notes that it keeps it interesting with each bite.
If you’ve been following the blog lately you know that I’ve been trying to get rid of these tubs of Parmesan and Romano cheese that we got a few weeks ago. And they are almost gone…….hooray! But I am really loving some of the recipes they have inspired.
A year or so ago Levi and I tried to be a little healthy. So we ate fish this one time. Lol. Now we are on a health kick again and we have literally doubled that effort! Last week we had a nice little Halibut. It was pretty good, but after I tasted this tilapia today I knew I HAD to share the recipe!
- 2 Tilpia filets
- 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
- 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
- 1/2 Cup Parmesan and Romano Cheese blend
- 2 tsp Paprika
- 2 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1 Tbsp Parsley
- 1 Tbsp Basil
- Pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 400.
Spray your cookie with cookie spray. Drizzle the oil and lemon juice over the filets. In a small bowl mix together all the other ingredients. Sprinkle each side of the filets with the mix and gently press in.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
We’ve been enjoying some wild rice and asparagus with our fish.
