5-Ingredient parmesan-crusted Tilapia


This one is for the non-fishy fish lovers. I find Tilapia to be pretty mild and easy to prepare, and this recipe is so darn easy that you’ll make it again and again, especially because you can buy those large packs of frozen tilapia. This recipe comes from Rachael Ray, the queen of easy recipes. And it’s another 5-ingredient one, so that’s all good by me!

When I use frozen Tilapia, I place it in a bowl of cold water and it defrosts in about half an hour. It’s delicious and so so easy. Here’s the recipe:

3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons paprika
1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley (I use dried and it works just as well)
4 tilapia fillets (about 1 pound total)
1 lemon, cut into wedges

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees . In a shallow dish, combine the cheese with the paprika and parsley and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle the fish with olive oil and dredge in the cheese mixture. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake until the fish is opaque in the thickest part, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve the fish with the lemon wedges.

Good luck and happy cooking!
