Throughout my teen years and my early 20s, I worked at a seafood restaurant in my home town. During my 6 years there I got to see a variety of fish on the menu and it was there that I was first introduced to tilapia. It is now one of may favorite pieces of fish, not only is it mild but it is also very inexpensive to make at home. Another plus, it doesn’t make your house smell when you cook it, and for me in my little apartment, that is a wonderful thing. For this recipe I coated tilapia with shredded Parmesan cheese, sauteed it until it was golden brown and topped it with a tomato-basil cream sauce. It was fast and delicious, perfect for a weeknight meal.
It took me a few tries to get the coating just right for this recipe. The first time I tried there was virtually no Parmesan breading left on the fish but after a talk with a friend I found that it was best to lightly dust the fish in seasoned flour, then egg, then the Parmesan. The result was a light, flaky coating that nicely complimented the fish.
I served this with steamed asparagus and my Creamy Mashed Potatoes, it was delicious. Enjoy!
