Broiled Tilapia Parmesan
This is probably one of the easiest and quickest recipes in our arsenal, and has a ton of flavor! Great for a weeknight. In 15 minutes or less, a delicious meal! We like to serve it with two of our favorite "cheats"- le seur canned peas (the creme de la creme of canned goods!) and instant mashed potatoes. Yes, I'm a little embarrassed to admit, but Ry & I both LOVE the flaky, artificial, chemically created goodness that comes from a box of instant spuds. Some people think caviar for special occasions, we think instant mashed potatoes. To each their own.
Anyway, onto the main course:
This recipe is for 2 fillets:
Set oven to "broil"
In a bowl, combine:
1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup fresh grated pecorino cheese
1/8 cup softened butter (2 tblsp)
1 and 1/2 tblsp mayo
squeeze of lemon juice
1/4 cup bread crumbs
1/4 tsp basil, parsley, oregano, bay leaf, celery salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
Mix all ingredients until they form a paste.
Arrange fillets and broil 2-3 minutes per side.
Cover with mixture and broil an additional 2 minutes, until topping browns and fish easily flakes.
Serve with wedges of lemon and sprigs of fresh parsley.
