Food Friday (on Saturday)

I am not a fish eater...not normally anyway.  But my husband and my son like it, so I look for different recipes that may help me eat it.  Here's the latest.  I tried it on both tilapia and salmon...I think we all liked it better on the tilapia.  The fishiness of the salmon was a little too much for the crust.  So, here's the recipe for this week! Again, I made changes to the original recipe.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

1 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup bread crumbs (I used Stovetop)     
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup Dijon style mustard
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon fresh dill
1/4 teaspoon dried italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 pounds tilapia fillets
1.Preheat your oven's broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.
2.In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with dill, dried italian seasoning, pepper, garlic powder and salt. Mix well and set aside.
3.Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan. Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the fillets over and broil for a couple more minutes. Remove the fillets from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish.

  1. I adore tilapia. That looks like a nice breading. Will definitely try that the next time I make it!
