Easy Baked Parmesan Tilapia


4 Tilapia Fillets
3 Tbsp butter, melted
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp thyme
Salt & Pepper
Lemon Slice (Optional)

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Pat tilapia dry (If frozen thaw tilapia first) with a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Lay on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick spray (Make sure it has sides. I didn't and I had butter running all over the oven and Jason's comment was...make sure you tell the people to have sides on their pan when you post this on your blog!). Bake 10-12 minutes.

4. While fish is baking, mix butter with garlic, thyme & Parmesan cheese. It says to mince the garlic clove but I actually grated the clove on my hand grater and it worked great!
5. Remove fish from oven and GENTLY flip (I tried to be gentle..it didn't go so well and I ended up with the fillets falling apart slightly). Spread the butter mixture on the fish and heat the broiler in your oven. Set fish under the broiler for about 2-3 minutes or until cheese gets golden brown and bubbly. Serve with lemon.
