Creamy Parmesan Tilapia

April 5, 2012

Creamy, cheesy, this broiled tilapia with parmesan cream sauce is a healthy, delicious dish.  Extra bonus – it is quick and easy!  5 minutes to prepare – less than 20 minutes to cook.

Preheat the oven’s broiler.  Spray your casserole pan with non-stick cooking spray.  (You can line it with foil and then spray it to save some clean up time)  Some tilapia is thin and flat, other tilapia pieces are thick and skinny.  You want to use a pan that will allow the pieces to be in there snug but not overlapping, if you can help it.  You don’t want the yummy cheese sauce to burn off so, don’t have a lot of “leftover” space in the pan. This is also where the foil can help.  Form it up around the fish.

1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese

2 T. butter or Brummel & Brown soft butter

1/2 cup plain yogurt

2 T. fresh lemon juice

1 tsp. fresh basil, finely chopped

1/4 tsp. onion powder

1/4 tsp. garlic granules

1/2 tsp. seasoned salt

1/4 tsp. ground pepper

In a small bowl, combine all  of the ingredients, except the fish fillets.

4 – 4 oz. tilapia fillets

Arrange fillets in a single layer in the pan.  Broil a few inches from the heat – about 6 minutes on each side – less if they are the thin pieces.

Remove from the oven and top each piece with the cheese mixture.

Broil for about 5 minutes more until the topping is creamy and slightly browned.
