Do you like fish? In general, I don't. Most fish is too fishy for my delicate tastes, and I don't get too far with seafood.
But in an effort to provide at least one fish-based meal for my family, I experimented with the most mild, innocuous type of fish I could find -- Tilapia. After a few tries, this is what I came up with: Parmesan Tilapia. It's savory enough to mask most of the (already mild) fish flavor, and simple enough to be a quick, weeknight favorite. Both of my daughters love it; Justin more than loves it -- he BEGS for it; Even I -- the self-professed fish-hater -- like it.
It's a keeper!
6 Tilapia fillets
2 - 3 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
Rinse Tilapia fillets; pat dry. Evenly arrange fillets on a (lightly oiled or sprayed) broiling rack. Dot each fillet with approximately 1/2 Tbsp butter, and sprinkle each with a dash of garlic salt. Broil until fish is white and flaky, about 8 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fillets. (I never time it, but just keep a close eye on the oven. Broiling gets the job done quickly.) When fillets are just this side of done, cover each with a generous sprinkle of shredded parmesan. One or two tablespoons per fillet should be plenty. Pop the fish back under the broiler for a minute or two, until the parmesan is a golden brown, melty crust. Serve immediately.
I usually add baked sweet potatoes, some sort of rice, and steamed vegetables to round out the dish. I hope you like it!
