Even if you’re not a big fish fan, you will probably enjoy this recipe. Tilapia is the chicken of fish- it doesn’t have a real strong fishy smell or flavor and it takes on the flavors of the food it’s cooked with. (just like chicken, zucchini, & apples)
- Tilapia Fillets
- Rice- cooked (to serve with fish)
- 1/2 c. mayo
- 2 T lemon juice
- 1/2 c. parmesan cheese
- 2 t. garlic & herb seasoning
- 2 t. onion salt
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Mix together: Mayo, lemon juice, parmesan cheese, and seasonings together to make a sauce and set aside.
Place Tilapia fillets on a cookie sheet lined with tin foil (easy clean up). Bake for 3-4 minutes on one side, then flip each fillet over and bake for 3-4 minutes on the other side. Once both sides are white or mostly white spoon the sauce on top of each fillet and bake for another 4 minutes or until the sauce starts to get golden and cheese is melted.
Serve over rice.
I have used different seasonings including garlic powder/salt, onion powder/salt, garlic & herb seasonings, & parsley flakes. All taste great!
