Parmesan-Crusted Tilapia (or Swai)

Looking for quick?  Easy?  Delicious????  This is it.  Five ingredients.  About 10 minutes baking time.  Piece of cake.

The original recipe calls for tilapia but I always prefer Swai.  I also substituted Asiago for the Parmesan (creamier).  It also calls for paprika, but I prefer smoked it a much headier flavor.  Serve it with rice or a baked potato and any green vegetable or salad.  

Perfection.  Quick. Easy.  Delicious.


3/4 cup freshly grated parmesan, or Asiago 
2 tsp (regular or smoked) paprika
1 Tbsp chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
4 tilapia (or Swai) fillets, about 4 oz each
1 lemon, cut into wedges

Preheat oven to 400F.  In a shallow dish, combine the cheese with the paprika and parsley and season with S&P.  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 minutes per inch).  Serve the fish with lemon wedges.
