Made this baked tilapia for dinner tonight. It was SO good, so easy and VERY healthy. Used olive oil instead of butter. Served with olive oil & garlic couscous, fresh tomato & oven roasted garlic brussel sprouts!

Tilapia, a relatively plentiful fish, has the unfortunate reputation of being dull. All it needs is a spice rub, a familiar barbecuing technique that works just as well indoors. You could also use this rub on chicken breasts or toss it with lightly oiled shrimp before cooking.
Parmesan-Crusted Tilapia. A delicious alternative/healthy dinner meal. The parmesan breading makes you forget you are eating fish! I made this with a side of brown rice, broccoli/cauliflower, and a romaine salad. My picky fiancee even enjoyed it! PS - I added a squirt of lime juice to the recipe while cooking!
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.
