I’ve been working on simplifying our meals to make cooking at home easier, and therefore more frequent. One of the meals that has found a regular place on our table recently has been Parmesan Tilapia. It’s super quick, super easy, and super tasty.
It’s one of those recipes that’s so simple I don’t even use a recipe or measuring cups anymore. I just throw stuff in a bowl and call it a day. When you’re basically covering a piece of fish in Parmesan cheese there’s not much you can do wrong.
4 Tilapia Fillets
1 Tbs. butter
2 Tbs. mayonnaise
1 Tbs. lemon juice
1 tsp. basil
Salt & pepper to taste
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1) Thaw your fish. I usually use this time to start some kind of easy veggie side dish. Usually it’s broccoli. Today it was zucchini. Almost every vegetable I make is sautéed with butter and salt. And probably garlic.
2) Melt the butter in a small bowl. Then mix in the rest of the ingredients. We like cheese, so I usually add more than the recipe calls for. You could also add more lemon juice if you’re really into lemon.
3) Broil the fish 3 minutes on each side. Remember to stir around your veggies occasionally.
4) Top the fish with the cheese mixture and broil another 2 minutes.
5) Serve it up and enjoy!
