Print pagePDF pageEmail page

This is one of the best tilapia recipes that I have found. It was on Mutt and Chops.

Ingredients-

  • 4 tilapia fillets (approximately ⅓ pounds each)
  • ½ cup unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon fresh Italian parsley, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • 2½ tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup panko bread crumbs
  • Salt
  • Pepper

Method-

  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F.
  2. Season both sides of the tilapia fillets with salt and freshly cracked black pepper.
  3. Melt the butter and add the diced garlic, lemon juice, and chopped parsley.
  4. Place the seasoned tilapia files in a shallow baking pan.
  5. Spoon about ½ of the butter sauce over the fillets, making sure to coat the entire surface.
  6. Mix the panko and Parmesan cheese together, and spoon equally over each fillet.
  7. Bake until starting to turn golden grown (about 10 minutes).
  8. Randomly drizzle some of the remaining butter sauce over the fish and bake another 2 minutes or so.
  9. Remove from the oven and serve hot. You can slightly warm up any remaining butter sauce if anyone wants to add some to their fish.
