grated Parmesan cheese
chopped fresh parsley
salt and ground black pepper to taste
NOTE: I am the original submitter of this recipe. These will not come out crunchy like a traditional crusted fish. They are low carb and do not use breading, therefore they have more of a baked and seasoned texture. I tried to have the title changed, but allrecipes informed me this could not be done and to add a review instead. This is also tasty made with shredded parmesan (can be found with the bagged shredded cheeses) instead of grated. I sometimes add minced garlic or garlic powder to the seasoning as well.
Yes, it's fast and easy, but the bottom is soggy and unless you put some lemon on it, it had a "mildew" taste.
I can't believe how good this was! Few ingredients, but it tastes like more time went into making it. Tilapia, by nature, can have a very muddy or earthy flavor if you're not used to it. I don't understand why the other reviewer blames that on the recipe! I would make this again. To avoid a soggy filet on the bottom, I flipped mine halfway through cooking. I also added a bit of garlic powder. I really like that it's low carb - perfect for my south beach diet. I served this with some grilled veggies.
Really nice fare, for not much prep/cook time. Good for a work and school night. I halved the paprika, and added a bit of panko to the cheese mixture, however.
Excellent! I used this reciped for red snapper fillets last night and it was very, very good. It needs a bit more zip for our taste buds so, as recommended by the originator of the recipe, I'll try some garlic and perhaps some tumeric and quite a bit more pepper next time.
I really liked this. It gave the tilapia a meaty flavor. I wanted to just use a saute pan today, so I made it on the stove top. I put the olive oil in the pan before I realized it was supposed to be drizzled on the fish. So, I probably used quite a bit of olive oil. No problem, the fish was nice and crispy and no sticking. I sauteed it about 3 minutes per side on about a temp of 6 or 6.5 on my stove. It was quick, easy, and delicious. Only change I made was we squeezed fresh lemon juice over ours before eating. ty
Made this for the first time tonight and we loved it! I only had 1/2 c. of parmesan left so I added 1/4 c. of Italian seasoned bread crumbs. Quick and easy and it turned out great. One of my 3.5 y/o twins even said he liked it "better than cookies"! ;)
This was good, crazy easy, and looks good on the plate, as well.
