What you need:
- 2 tilapia fillets
- 2 tbs margarine or butter
- 1 tsp garlic
- 2 tbs parmasean
- gruyere cheese
- lemon (optional)
- salt and pepper
Pre-heat the oven to 400 degrees. While the oven heats, place tilapia fillets on a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Salt and pepper both sides.
Cook for 10-12 minutes. While the fish cooks, mix garlic, parm and butter and set aside until fish is done. When the fish is done, flip very gently; the fish will break easily. Spread 1/4 of the mixture on each fish fillet and top with gruyere cheese. Place back in the oven for an additional 10-12 minutes.
When the cheese is completely melted and slightly brown, top with the remaining parm mixture. I also squeezed a little bit of lemon on each fillet.
I served it with a side of roasted asparagus and it was absolutely delicious!
Mike and I were big fans of the garlic and cheese combo on the tilapia. It was a great first attempt at making tilapia and I am definitely going to try to make it again. The best thing about tilapia is that it is typically on sale or if not on sale, it is pretty cheap. I hope you enjoy!
