10-Minute Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

IMG-2194By the end of the weekend, we are usually so exhausted, we default to take-out. But because my youngest daughter is finally eating solids, I wanted to introduce fish to Matilda this weekend.

So, I bought tilapia for the entire family and cooked hers with nothing on it. I made Amelia’s the same as ours and she gobbled this right up with some Trader Joe’s Harvest Grains (LOVE)!

Start to finish, this took 10-minutes. My intention is to be making the entire family one dinner by the end of this year. It’s exhausting otherwise! Fingers crossed!

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper


  1. Adjust oven rack to the top position and turn on broiler.
  2. Place tilapia fillets on a foil lined pan. Broil for 3 minutes.
  3. While fish is cooking, combine rest of ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  4. Remove tilapia from the oven, flip over and spread the parmesan mixture over the uncooked sides of the tilapia. Return to the oven and broil an additional 3-4 minutes making sure not to over cook the fish. Remove from oven and serve with salad, rice or grains. Enjoy!
