You probably guessed this already but the best part of all this is that the Parmesan gets a little crispy-crunch to it because it broils so beautifully. Pair that with the delicately flaky white fish and the fresh tang of the tomatoes, and then the thick and smooth basil sauciness of the pesto… ohhhyeah. I have a thing for texture. And cheese.
Parmesan Tilapia- Holy cow, was this amazing. I usually do not like Tilapia but in this dish it was great (I think another fish would make it outstanding). My 23 month old son devoured it. I used a little bit too much green onion but other than than perfect. Will definitely make again. We paired it with wild rice and lemon roasted asparagus.
