Parmesan Baked Tilapia
One of my all time favorite fish recipes is this Parmesan Crusted Tilapia; however, this past week I was looking to make it a bit healthier. I decided to simply lightly coat the fish with a Parmesan topping then bake it in the oven. It gave it a great hint of flavor without the added fat and calories.
Of course, I also had to have my fat free tarter sauce too. That’s a must in my fish eating world.
Let’s get on to this tasty recipe!
- 4 6oz Frozen or Fresh Tilapia
- 1/2 Cup Flour
- 1/2 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
- 1/2 Tsp Garlic Salt
- 1 Tsp Oregano
- 1 Tsp Sweet Basil
Preheat oven to 425*.
Use a wire rack to cook this to avoid it sticking. I also sprayed the rack to help with the sticking.
Place the flour in a bowl and set aside.
Next mix the cheese, salt, oregano, and basil in a separate dish.
Take each fillet and dip it in the flour then pat on the Parmesan mixture. Add the mixture to both sides of the fish.
This will need to bake 15 minutes then turn over and bake an additional 15 minutes. The fish should flake easily with a fork when done.
Enjoy this healthier alternative to a wonderful tilapia recipe!
