Are you someone who loves seafood, but doesn’t make it at home? This recipe may just change all of that. I hate making it at home because it is never as good to me as it is in a restaurant. But that was until I tried this recipe. The fish I used was frozen and thinly filleted so I didn’t expect much. I was pleasantly surprised at how tasty and tender the fish was. It isn’t diet food, but it is delicious. I’ve put it with mashed potato puree on the bottom and topped it with roasted asparagus and mushrooms. Heaven.
MaMa’s Supper Club Tilapia Parmesan
- 2 lbs tilapia fillets (orange roughy, cod or red snapper can be substituted)
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 4 tablespoons butter , room temperature
- 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 3 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
- 1/4 teaspoon seasoning salt (I like Old Bay seasoning here)
- 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
- black pepper
- 1 dash hot pepper sauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In buttered 13-by-9-inch baking dish or jellyroll pan, lay fillets in single layer. Do not stack fillets. Brush top with juice.
In bowl combine cheese, butter, mayonnaise, onions and seasonings.
Mix well with fork.
Bake fish in preheated oven 10 to 20 minutes or until fish just starts to flake.
Spread with cheese mixture and bake until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
Baking time will depend on the thickness of the fish you use.
Watch fish closely so that it does not overcook.
Note: This fish can also be made in a broiler. Broil 3 to 4 minutes or until almost done. Add cheese and broil another 2 to 3 minutes or until browned.
I got the recipe from Crabbycakes.
