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 paprika....gives it a much headier flavor. Serve it with rice or a baked potato and any green vegetable or salad.
Perfection. Quick. Easy. Delicious.
PARMESAN-CRUSTED TILAPIA (or SWAI) (4 servings)
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.
