A simple fish recipe that is done in 20 minutes and will even impress non-fish lovers!

Parmesan Crusted Tilapia on Taste and Tell

You know how I told you that I was going to cook more fish this year?? Well, I think I’m on a roll.

And the big bag of tilapia from Costco has been helping quite a bit.

But really, I’m glad that my love of fish has been re-ignited, because it’s been fun to switch things up from our normal chicken/beef/pork routine. And it doesn’t hurt that it’s good for you, too!!

recipe for Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

To top it all off, you can have this on the table in 20 minutes. The thing that took the longest was waiting for the oven to preheat. I’d say a short list of ingredients and a short timeline is reason enough to try this. I even got the thumbs up from the 5 year old. She is becoming quite the fish lover!!

I know that we will be eating in tonight for Valentine’s Day, and this would actually make a great dinner in idea. I always feel a little fancy when we eat fish at home, so serve this with some Vanilla Bean Rice Pudding with Raspberries and Salted Caramel, and your date night in is planned!!

    I made this last night when I saw tilapia at the store and remembered thinking this looked good (I shuffled around some menu planning to switch it to last night’s dinner haha) – now I had to come comment that it was so delicious!! Definitely will be rotated into my future menus. Love fast, easy and delicious recipes! Thanks for sharing :)

    made this for my husband tonight! we loved it! although my tilapia was pretty watery… i’m thinking next time i will pan sear it and then throw it in the oven to finish and get a little crispy. this definitely goes into my dinner rotation. if anyone wants the nutrition breakdown, i calculated it per 4oz serving:

    It sounds delicious Deborah. I’ve already pinned the recipe and I’m going to try it tonight.
    Thank you.

  10. Rosa says:

    I was wondering if I could use frozen fish or if it had to be fresh? I don’t normally cook fish, but I was scrolling through recipes and my boyfriend stopped me and was practically drooling! If I can use frozen, what should I do to it to prepare for the recipe (thaw, etc).

    • Deborah says:

      You can definitely use frozen – that’s what I used. Just make sure it is completely thawed and you will be good to go!

  11. Brandi says:

    I am making this tonight. I do not have fresh Parmesan cheese, so i will be using the kind in the bottle.

  12. Bri says:

    Does the paprika give it any heat? My husband is very sensitive to spicy food.

  13. MMike says:

    Fast, simple and healthy. What more can I ask for?

  14. Michelle @ Modern Acupuncture says:

    Gorgeous photo! Pinned! Can’t wait to give this a try tonight. I’m also getting a little tired of chicken. Looking forward to shaking things up a bit!

  15. Hope says:

    I made this! I love it!! The only thing I did different was exchanged salt with garlic salt:) the man loved the recipe as well!

  16. Mara says:

    Can I bake it in it’s own individual foil pack? If so for how long?
