Ever suddenly realize it’s 5:00 and no plans for dinner? This Parmesan Herb Tilapia recipe makes a great last-minute meal- quick, easy, and very tasty.
I used tilapia fillets straight from the freezer- no need to thaw if you’re in a hurry. You’ll also need Greek yogurt, parmesan cheese, garlic, and your choice of herbs. Herbes de Provence is my favorite herb mixture- I use it in most chicken dishes, as well as in this tilapia recipe.
Does anyone else find it funny that I used Greek yogurt, French herb mixture, and Mexican parmesan cheese? No? Just me? Moving on…
Stir together the four ingredients and spread a thick layer over the fish.
Bake at 400F until done. Frozen fillets will take about 30 minutes. I like the topping to be nice and brown and chewy, so I also place it under the broiler for a few minutes.
For a quick side dish, serve with sliced cucumbers and tomatoes, topped with your favorite dressing.
Parmesan Herb Tilapia
4 tilapia fillets, frozen or thawed
6 oz container Greek yogurt
1/2 c. grated parmesan cheese
1 t. Herbes de Provence, or your favorite herbs, to taste
1 clove garlic, minced
Spray baking sheet with nonstick spray and place tilapia fillets in pan. (For easy clean up, I first line the pan with foil.) Stir together yogurt, cheese, herbs and garlic; spread over tilapia. Bake at 400F for 20- 30 minutes, until done. Place under broiler to brown topping as desired. Enjoy!
