Recipe from Tasty Kitchen

"Incredibly quick and easy! Everyone, including my teenage son that doesn't like ANYTHING loves it. I have made it with tilapia and swai both, actually like swai better. Throw a bag of steamer veggies in the microwave and dinner is ready in20 minutes. I don't even thaw the fish, just drain off the excess moisture. Excellent!"

Are you making this? 
4 tilapia fillets
salt and pepper
3 Tbsp butter; at room temperature
1 clove garlic; minced
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4 cup Pamesan cheese; grated

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



1) Preheat oven to 400ºF.

2) Pat tilapia dry (if frozen, it should be thawed first) with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper. Lay on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick spray and bake for 10-12 minutes. While fish is baking, mix butter with garlic, thyme and parmesan cheese.

3) Remove fish from oven and gently flip. Spread about 1/2 tablespoon of 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 and bubbly.

"A variation on this recipe  Here, a simple sprinkle of buttery bread crumbs appeals to kids but can also be embellished for adults. We rely on a handful of grated Parmesan cheese for salty sharpness, a pinch of lemon zest for lightness and a garnish of fresh basil for a wonderful aroma and fresh flavor that brings it all together."

Very easy to make. Would add some parmesan on top after you take it out of the broiler. Tasty!

I just made this recipe! My family loved it. It's very hard to get my family to eat fish. Can't wait to do it again.
