Easy Parmesan-Crusted Baked Tilapia


It's just another manic meatless Monday!
I wish it was Sunday, that's my fun day...

Tell me, does that ring a bell with any of you?

I remember how I felt in my employed days when Monday rolled around again, and hearing about meatless Monday at work just made it worse.  

Those days are over, I like seafood much more than I did back then, and I'm always looking for a delicious way to dress up fish...




This is a great tilapia recipe that's perfect for any day!

It's delicious with it’s crispy, flavorful Parmesan crust just using just a few everyday ingredients!

Tilapia is ofttimes referred to as “the chicken of fish” thanks to its mild taste and being readily available.  We definitely don’t buy it fresh here in the Midwest, but frozen tilapia is generally on display at the grocers’ seafood counter.  

This recipe would work well with other whitefish also.  The thickness of the fish may require a longer baking time, just bake until flaky.



Ready to bake

A good entrée for dinner tonight!

Give it a go!

Ingredients:

  2. This looks very good Pam and would work well for the grouper I have in the freezer.

  4. Fish would be a good idea around here -- other than tuna salad and smoked salmon I haven't cooked any lately.

    1. I get it, Claudia! Tilapia is a thin fish compared to flounder and a little different taste. The coating is good! Take care

  6. I really like Tilapia, but I always worry about buying the right kind. There is so much hype these days about purchasing this eating this particular fish.
    the recipe sounds so good...looks great too...

    1. I don't know who to believe, Shug! So I do it the Julia Child way, everything in moderation and just have it now and then.

  7. Tilapia is an affordable, mild-flavored kind of fish, but a bit controversial - they say it might cause inflammation. However, with your way of dressing it up and baking it, I'm sure it's not only delicious, but also completely. ..safe.

  9. Pam, Not only does your Parmesan Crusted Baked Tilapia look great, it is healthy too! Love the added spice with the paprika. We tend to use red pepper flakes for something like this...or in pasta, etc., but we'll have to give the paprika a try. We just never think of it. As for meatless Mondays, fortunately my family ignored that trend! We rarely ate fish that we didn't catch when I was growing up. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

    1. Thanks, Dave! It was really good and is healthy too, low in calories fat, etc. I didn't think about red pepper flakes but will the next time. Yep, the meatless Monday was truly always ignored here to, we ate whatever was available at the time. The only fish I had growing up was fried fresh blue gills, the absolute best! Take care and have a great rest of the week!

    1. Thanks, Dawn! I truly didn't care for seafood, outside of blue gills, until just the last few years, I even eat shrimp now, but draw the line at lobster, calamari, etc. Take care

  17. We're not big fans of tilapia but I'll bet this would be delicious on Rainbow Trout or Walleye fillets too! The coating sounds wonderful!
