I was at the store the other day getting some groceries. I was picking up some beef when I looked to the left and saw some fresh fish. I walked over and grabbed a package of tilapia. I got home and asked Adam what happened as I had willing just bought fish, but after loving this pesto fish so much I have been craving fish again. This news obviously couldn’t of been more exciting for my fish loving husband!
The next day while on a message board I found this recipe and since many people raved about it I decided I had to give it a try. We enjoyed this, and even our 2 year old ate some, I didn’t love it quite as much as the pesto one. But I will be buying more fish. Any recipes I must try?
- 1 lb tilapia filets
- 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh garlic
- 1/4 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
- 1/8 teaspoon onion salt
- ground black pepper to taste
Pre-heat the oven broiler. Line a baking pan with foil and spray with cooking spray.
In a small bowl, combine the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise, lemon juice, garlic, Italian seasoning, onion salt, and pepper. Mix well and set aside.
Arrange tilapia filets in a single layer on baking pan. Broil a few inches from heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the filets over and broil for an additional 2 minutes.
Remove from heat and cover filets with Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side. Return to broiler and continue cooking until the top is lightly browned and the fish flakes easily with a fork.
