Parmesan-Crusted Tilapia

Why did I make this? Well, my husband and I went out with our longtime friends to Macaroni Grill and they had this dish on the menu. But, instead of tilapia, they used sole. The next day, I remembered I had a good amount of frozen tilapia (which is white fish like sole), so thus, I went and searched out a recipe ------> Rachael Ray's inspiring recipe. Tried it; and woweewow! Delish... I definitely need to add this to my recipe book. Here is the copy/paste version of the recipe: 

Parmesan-Crusted Tilapia

 Parmesan-Crusted Tilapia

[4 servings Prep: 10 mins Cook: 10 mins]


  • 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 4 tilapia fillets (about 1 pound total)
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees . In a shallow dish, combine the cheese with the paprika and parsley and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle the fish with olive oil and dredge in the cheese mixture. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake until the fish is opaque in the thickest part, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve the fish with the lemon wedges.

By-the-way, this was my first time using paprika in a dish and now I'm hooked. I've been brainstorming on all the things I can do with it. Happy cooking!

We've all seen those annoying, yet catchy commericals ... Coupon Suzy!

So, I am going to actually try this endeavor -- now that I'm a wife. My husband and I are doing tons of renovations projects lately (backyard, garden, light fixtures, paint, kitchen...), which triggers the need to find GREAT SAVINGS AND DEALS... so try this great site with me and let's save together.

I'll post on my exciting feats from time to time...
