Usually, for dinner, we roll with a simple one platter meal that I can make in minutes.

We mostly go for salads or one-pot meals like Creamy Baked Pesto Chicken Thighs and it works just fine for us.

This recipe gets done in just 20 minutes. Yes, it is a very quick and easy fish recipe that way!

Nevertheless, it is very tasteful and has a mind-blowing texture.

Why? Because it is crisp on the outside. Whereas, on the inside, it is nicely flaky and juicy.

If you have tried my other tilapia recipe which is Spicy Lemon Garlic Baked Tilapia and liked it, you will love this recipe too.

In order to get a great crunch for the tilapia fillets, I have used mainly bread crumbs and grated parmesan.

Also, I did add Italian herbs to the parmesan mixture so that the coat doesn’t taste all bland.

If you get it baked well then this recipe for tilapia crusted with parmesan gives a beautiful golden brown tilapia fillet.

Furthermore, it has the uplifting flavor of olive oil, lemon juice, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper, herbs – all of it in one bite.

What more do you want, eh? This is seriously one of the best-baked dishes to make when you are running short on time, telling you!

Tilapia is rich in vitamin B12, potassium, phosphorous, and selenium. So, make this dish whenever you have time.

Serving Suggestions

You can serve this dish as an appetizer on its own.

A glass of Red Wine Sangria will be a perfect match with this. If serving for the main course, you can pair it with Brown Rice, Apple Salad, or quinoa cooked with chicken stock.

Steamed vegetables are also a good option.

Instant Pot Garlic Mashed Potatoes pair great with this dish too.

Does tilapia have to be thawed before cooking?

If you are on a time crunch, you can definitely cook the tilapia frozen.

Wash the pieces under running water to get rid of any frost and dab the pieces with a kitchen towel.

Now coat them with the parmesan mixture and bake.

You can also soak the frozen tilapia fillets in water and keep changing the water every 10 minutes to thaw them quickly.

  1. Can you use freshly grated Parmesan from a wedge or does it have to be the more coarse, pre-grated cheese from a tub? Thank you!
