Baked Tilapia Parmesan

Baked Tilapia Parmesan – Easy and Delicious

This Baked Tilapia Parmesan gets its delightful taste from the freshly grated Parmesan. Baking gives it a lightly browned finish and makes it oh so good.


There’s a lovely blend of flavors in the topping, lots of layers to it (sour, salty, a tiny bit spicy, a little bit herby, and cheesy).

The fish is beautiful when it comes out of the oven and tastes even better than it looks.

Definitely a recipe to add to your recipe rotation!
