Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

I decided to try out a new recipe with tilapia was my own thrown together version of Parmesan Crusted Tilapia from a Rachael-Ray-Magazine I got in the mail some time ago. [I NEVER throw magazines away & it irks Mr.Hooah, lol] We love tilapia because it is our easy-to-cook,/go-to fish! I always, always, ALWAYS have fresh shredded parmesan cheese on hand (I like to use it in my super easy Lemon-Parm Vinaigrette for my salads) so I used some of it & trying to add a little bit of a flavor blast to this recipe... mostly because I only had 1/2 the grated parm on hand though lol, so no offense to Rachael! Mr.Hooah liked this MUCH better than the regular lemon-pepper! Anyways, this one is short & sweet, going to go spend a little time with Mr.Hooah before he leaves out for the field to play Army for a week lol. Hope you guys enjoy!

2/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 c. fresh shredded Parmesan cheese
1 TBSP paprika
TBSP parsley
4 tilapia fillets, rinsed & patted dry
1 lemon, cut into wedges
1/8 tsp garlic pepper seasoning
  • Preheat oven to 400'... 
  • In a bowl, combine the cheese, paprika, parsley, & garlic pepper seasoning. 
  • Drizzle the fish with EVOO & press each side into the cheese mixture. If there is any of the left over mixture in the bowl, I just sprinkle that on top of the fish also.
  • Place on a foil-lined baking sheet & bake 12 minutes. 
  • Serve the fish with the lemon wedges.


  1. I never throw magazines away either :). Looks like I am in good company. This looks delicious. And, like you, I have most on hand..with the exception of the tilapia :).

    Love the new look.
