Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

Here is a blog entry from my old blog that deserves repeating!    Obviously it’s old (from 2011)

I have been dying to try Tilapia, it’s something I had never had before (GASP!) simply because I never found a recipe I liked!  Until I ventured over to my friend, Kelly’s website and found one that sounded really delicious!    My parents had just gotten home from a 14 day cruise (so jealous) and my Mom hadn’t done food shopping yet, so I invited them over for dinner.  I decided to pair the tilapia with Kelly’s Sundried Tomato Risotto and the Roasted Cauliflower.  And this meal did not disappoint!

As everyone knows I am always looking for recipes that my kids and husband will eat (I pretty much eat everything — well……..except bananas, tuna fish, chocolate, yellow mustard and of course I limit my red meat), and this was a hit!

Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

6 tilapia filets
6 sundried tomatoes
1/4 cup pine nuts
1 cup Parmesan cheese (grated)
2 TBSP dried basil

Heat oven to broil

In a food processor add sundried tomatoes, pine nuts, cheese and basil and pulse until mixed well and very finely chopped.

Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels.  Place on a baking sheet that has been sprayed generously with cooking spray.   Put under the broiler for 3 minutes and then remove.

 Flip filets over and sprinkle generously with the mixture…making sure you coat the whole thing.

Put back under the broiler for an additional 3-4 minutes.   KEEP THE OVEN DOOR OPEN and keep an eye on this…because it cooks very quickly.
