Artichoke & Parmesan Tilapia

This fish is very light but incredibly flavorful.  Tilapia is so mild and the slight nutty tang from the cheese really does perk it up a bit.  Paired with the artichoke hearts, breadcrumbs and lemon it’s a perfect combination of flavors for the fish. 

This recipe comes together so fast and the prep time is a short-only about 5 minutes. The fish will be on the table 20 minutes later. Conveniently you can also roast vegetables at the same time and have everything finish cooking at the same time.

Artichoke & Parmesan Tilapia

Ingredients:

  • 2 4oz fresh tilapia filets
  • 6 oz artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 375.  Line a baking dish just large enough to hold the fish with parchment paper and give it a bit of non-stick spray or olive oil.
  2. Wash the fish, pat them dry and sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides then place them into the baking dish.
  3. Combine the artichoke hearts, breadcrumbs, parmesan and lemon juice in a small bowl and stir to combine.
  4. Spoon half of the artichoke mixture over each piece of fish. Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until fish is cooked thoroughly.
