Have you been told by your doctor, nutritionist, or a weight-loss article to include fish in your diet? I'm here to share the best recipe for baked tilapia that you've ever tasted.
For some, eating fish is no big deal. However, if you are like me, you are probably not too thrilled about having to eat fish or any seafood. I can’t stand fish because the taste is too strong and the smell is not appetizing whatsoever.
A couple years back, my family and I went into a health phase and started cooking healthy and tasty meals at home. None of us were big on fish but then one of my aunts gave us a recipe for baked tilapia or flounder. We tried it out and were pleasantly surprised when we tried it. Tilapia and flounder are both mild tasting fish so are not as strong as other fish, and the mixture you cover the fish in reduces the fishy taste and smell even more. The two fish taste the same. The only difference is the thickness. Flounder is thinner than tilapia so it would be the best option if you want less of a fishy taste. However, with the flounder being so thin, it is hard to get out of the pan as it tends to fall apart. The tilapia stays intact when you lift it out. If you are curious to try, here is the best recipe for baked tilapia.
3 to 5 tilapia or flounder filets
¼ stick butter, melted
½ cup parmesan cheese
2 tbsp. mayo
1 tbsp. lemon juice
¼ tsp. basil
¼ tsp. pepper
¼ tsp. garlic salt
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. In a small bowl, melt the butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Next, add all of the ingredients to the butter and mix until it has a good consistency. Then place the fish in a 9x13 glass pan. After that, coat the top of the fish with the mixture. Bake for 15-18 minutes until the edges are slightly brown. Pull out and enjoy.
