The Hubs is making me post this one. He feels this Lemon Parmesan Tilapia is a keeper that must be repeated again and again. He is right!
Not only did he fill in on the cooking duty (because I was swamped with grant deadlines and he had a day-off) but he even insisted on snapping the photo. Really, he should be writing this post too, don't you agree?
The dish came together quickly and had gourmet results in under 30 minutes from start to finish. The tilapia comes in at only 240 calories and 14 grams of fat - perfect for those of us needing to sport a swimsuit during these warm summer months!
We've experienced some hot weather lately and the night this tilapia was prepared was no exception so rather than heat up the house, the Hubs put the 13x9 inch glass dish on the Traeger grill and proceeded to cook it exactly as you would in the oven at 400 degrees.
Lemon Parmesan Tilapia
Recipe from Wildtree
3 tablespoons Wildtree Natural Grapeseed Oil or you could use olive oil
1 pound of tilapia filets
1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
4 tablespoons Wildtree Zesty Lemon Grapeseed Oil (you could substitute equal parts of lemon and olive oil but I highly recommend the Lemon Grapeseed Oil)
1 tablespoon Wildtree Onion and Chive Blend
1 tablespoon capers
1. Preheat oven or grill to 400 degrees. Pour Natural Grapeseed Oil in bottom of 9x13 inch glass casserole dish.
2. Dip the top side of tilapia and cover filet with grated parmesan cheese.
3. Bake in oven or grill for 20-25 minutes. (The Traeger grill took a little closer to 30 minutes. Just check when the fish begins to flake with a fork.)
4. Top tilapias with Zesty Lemon Grapeseed Oil and capers before serving.
