Parmesan Crusted Tilapia (Only 5 Ingredients) | August 9, 2023



What Exactly is Parmesan Crusted Tilapia?

Parmesan crusted tilapia is a baked fish entree that is covered in a parmesan cheese and breadcrumb coating. When baked, the parmesan-breadcrumb coating creates a golden crispy exterior. The inside of the fish remains tender, moist, and flaky. It’s almost like fried fish but much healthier.

Tilapia is a type of freshwater fish, often referred to as “the chicken of fish” because of its naturally mild and subtly sweet flavor and its low cost. It is considered one of the healthiest types of fish, as it’s full of important nutrients, vitamins, and protein, but low in mercury.

This parmesan crusted tilapia is a great option for those who don’t typically like the “fishy” taste of seafood. Plus, it’s crazy easy to make, incredibly versatile, and pairs well with a multitude of other side dishes. It’s sure to please everyone at your dinner table!


Making Parmesan Tilapia in 4 Quick Steps

It’s almost unbelievable that it takes only four steps and twenty minutes to go from raw tilapia fillets to crispy, savory parmesan crusted tilapia. Here’s an overview of the steps to make this fish

  • Combine the dry ingredients: In a small bowl, combine parmesan, bread crumbs, and garlic parsley salt.
  • Assemble the tilapia: Place tilapia fillets in a single layer in a baking dish. Avoid overlapping fillets to ensure that a good crisp develops on every piece.
  • Cover with the toppings: Sprinkle the parmesan-panko mixture on top. Spray with oil to help the coating stick and crisp in the oven.
  • Bake: Bake at 425°F for about 15 minutes or until the fish is opaque, easily flakes with a fork and the internal temp is 145°F. Use a thermometer (here’s our favorite) to check the thickest part of the fish
