This is a super easy and quick way to cook your fish with minimal clean up. I was thinking about my Parmesan Meatballs and how one of the secret ingredients (dry Parmesan) turned it from normal meatballs to meatballs with the X factor. Mr. Cooking Jar loves my meatballs so much I can pretty much ask for anything on those days and take advantage of his ‘meatball high’ while being subjected to the inevitable dirty jokes involving my balls.
The idea of applying the same secret weapon to tilapia was tempting, so here we have Parmesan Crusted Tilapia with just a sprinkle of paprika, fresh parsley and optional lemon wedges. This lead to the idea of one day making panko crusted tilapia: the recipe will soon follow. In the meantime, enjoy this easy and healthy recipe!
