Parmesan-Crusted Tilapia

Parmesan-Crusted Tilapia (inspired by Rachael Ray)


about 6 tilapia fillets (thought this would work well with any fish, really!)

3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (not the powdered stuff)
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper
1/2 tsp dried parsley (or about 1 Tb chopped fresh parsley)
1 lemon, cut into wedges

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside.

In a shallow bowl or pie dish, mix the cheese, paprika, garlic pepper, and parsley until well combined. Pay your fillets dry and season with salt and pepper. Brush/drizzle the fish with a little bit of olive oil and place in the cheese, patting it on to coat the fish on both sides.  

Place the fish on your prepared baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes (12 if your fillets are pretty thick). Turn the broiler on high and place fish under broiler for 5 minutes to crisp up the cheese. Serve with lemon wedges to squeeze over.
