4 filets tilapia
1 cup flour
1 large egg
¾ cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tsp paprika
1 Tbsp fresh parsley
1 dash Salt
1 dash pepper
1 Medium lemon, cut into wedges (optional)
Preheat oven to 400F. Place flour in shallow dish. Beat egg and place in a separate shallow dish. Combine cheese, paprika and parsley in a shallow dish. Drizzle fish with olive or canola oil and dredge in flour, then egg, and then cheese mixture. Place on foil-lined baking sheet and bake until opaque about 10 to 12 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges.
I love the crusted tilapia that they sell at the meat counter at Fareway so when I saw they posted this recipe I was super excited. I followed the directions and it turned out magnificent! Next time I will try ¼ cup egg beaters instead of an egg to cut some fat and calories. Also, I didn’t have lemon wedges so I just sprinkled some lemon juice on the filets. So yummy!!
