Lemon Parmesan Tilapia

This dish is ultra-easy to prepare and make.  In fact, from start to finish, it took me less than 20 minutes.  I had some frozen tilapia fillets that I thawed overnight.  I love cheese, so when I came across this recipe I had to try it out.  After the first bite, I knew this needed to be shared!  I chose to stir fry some french green beans with garlic oil to round out the meal. You're going to love this dish!

Lemon Parmesan Tilapia Ingredients
  • 2-2 1/2 pounds Tilapia fillets
  • 2-3 tsp. softened butter
  • 3 tsp. fresh lemon juice or concentrate (about 2 tsp for concentrate)

Lemon Parmesan Sauce
  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise 
  • 2 tblsp. fresh lemon juice (or less for concentrate)
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Garnish (optional)
  • fresh lemon slices
  • parsley

Cooking Directions
  • Rinse the tilapia filets in cold water and pat dry with paper towels
  • Place on baking sheet lined with aluminum foil lightly coated with cooking spray (you don't have to use aluminum foil, but it makes clean-up real easy)
  • Turn on oven to broil 
  • Mix butter and lemon juice together in a small bowl
  • Mix mayonnaise, lemon juice, and parmesan cheese together in a slightly larger bowl
  • Coat the tilapia with the butter/lemon juice mixture and place under broiler. Set timer for 5 minutes
  • When the timer goes off, take out the fillets and coat with the mayo/lemon juice/parmesan cheese mixture
  • Place back under broiler for 3 more minutes (until the surface has a toasted cheese appearance)
  • Take out of broiler and devour!
I've been eating the meal in the picture the whole time I've been writing this blog entry, and ooooweeeeeee is it good! Enjoy!
