This is yet another recipe that I made last week however have not had time to post about it (I am slowly but surely catching up!). After making this, I finally used up the 10 tilapia fillets I had bought on sale a few weeks ago. I have to admit I’m sort of sick of tilapia now (I suppose that’s what happens when you have it so many times in a row). In any case, this was a tasty dish – who doesn’t like parmesan-crusted food??
-4 tilapia filets (or however many you need)
-3tbsp butter, at room temperature
-1/4cu grated/shredded parmesan cheese
-1 garlic clove, minced
-salt and pepper to taste
-lemon slices for serving
-Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
-Pat tilapia dry with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper.
-Lay on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick spray and bake for 10-12 minutes.
-While fish is baking, whisk butter with garlic, thyme and parmesan cheese.
-Remove fish from oven and gently flip (I realized after spreading the mixture on that I forgot to do that, but it still tasted good). Spread about 1/2 tablespoons of butter mixture on the fish, and heat the broiler in your oven.
-Set fish under the broiler for about 2-3 minutes, or until cheese gets golden and bubbly.
-Serve with lemon
