Easy Oven Baked Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

Oven Baked Paresan Crusted Tilapia from 101 Cooking For Two
Wonderful. A crispy Parmesan crust with great flavor with only a few ingredients. A quick and easy weeknight recipe with weekend appeal.  This will become a standard in our home.

Rating
A 5 for a fish person.

This is a slight modification of a Rachel Ray recipe. I took the remaining coating and piled it on top after the initial coating.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees convection.  Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Wash and pat dry tilapia.
Mix Parmesan, paprika, parsley, salt and pepper in a shallow pan.
Brush tilapia with oil on both sides and then dredge in the Parmesan mixture patting the coating on. Place on the baking sheet. Take remaining Parmesan mixture and pat on top of the already coated fish. Bake for about 12 minutes until flaky.

This looks and sounds delicious! I haven't experimented with cooking fish a whole lot, but lately I've been seeing so many good recipes. I may have to make this. Thanks!

I don't do fish much but I have an oven roasted parmesan chicken that works really well so I bet your fish was awesome (if you like fish, ha ha).

What if you don't have a convection oven?

The idea is to cook high and fast. So either increase the temp to 425 on a regular oven or increase the time by a minute or two. I think I would try the increase temp first but either should work.

Should this dish be covered in the oven or left uncovered?

Uncovered on a aluminum foil cover cooking sheet of some type. And give the foil a quick spray of pam to help prevent sticking is always a good idea but I frequently forget and it's usually fine.

This recipe is amazing. When I make mine I add bread crumbs to make it more crispy. Also I use the same recipe to make chicken breasts. Love it.

Try the parmesan garlic baked potatoes from mid May. They are great... but maybe a little parmesan overload.

Does "1 T" mean TEAspoon or TABLEspoon?

"T" is tablespoon and "t" is teaspoon
