Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

We try to eat a lot of fish as part of our whole "healthy eating" plan. Tilapia is a fish that's very versatile, so this is another food that we keep trying new things with since we have it so much!

I found this recipe on Rachel Ray's Web site. Say what you will about Rachel, but she has some damn tasty recipes! I served this with some simply prepared butternut squash (with a touch of butter, salt and pepper) and french-cut green beans.

3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspooons paprika
1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
4 tilapia fillets (about 1 pound total)
1 lemon, cut into wedges
Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
Salt and freshly ground pepper

Preheat the oven to 400ยบ. In a shallow dish, combine the cheese with the paprika and parsley and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle the fish with olive oil and dredge in the cheese mixture. Place on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake until the fish is opaque in the thickest part, 10 to 12 minutes. Serve the fish with the lemon wedges.
