Healthy Dinner Idea: Flaky Parmesan Tilapia

Flaky Parmesan Tilapia- Healthy dinner idea - super quick, super healthy idea #HealthyDinner Idea #HealthyDinner # cheesychicken


Recipe for this healthy dinner idea is incredibly flaky and full of flavor, and it’s a great way to get your children to start liking fish. It need not be expensive, either. You can buy 2 pounds of frozen tilapia fillets from any landlocked grocery store inexpensively and thaw them before cooking. If you don’t like the idea of using tilapia, use any other thin white fish of your liking.

Ingredients for this healthy dinner idea

>> 2 pounds tilapia
>> 4 tablespoons (1⁄2 stick) butter, melted
>> Black pepper
>> Red pepper flakes (optional)
>> 3⁄4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
>> 1⁄4 cup mayonnaise
>> 2 heaping tablespoons Greek yogurt
>> 3⁄4 teaspoon dried dill

Directions to prepare this healthy dinner idea
1Preheat the oven to a high broil. Rinse the fish and pat it dry. Place it in a single layer (no overlap) in an extra-large baking dish or 2 medium baking dishes. Pour the melted butter over the top and turn each fillet in the butter to coat well on both sides.


2Sprinkle lightly with black pepper and pepper flakes (if using). Combine the Parmesan, mayo, yogurt, and dill in a bowl and stir until paste forms. Set aside.

3Put the fish on the second rack from the top of the oven and broil for 3 minutes. Remove from the oven, turn each piece over, and smear with some Parmesan paste to cover the top of the fish (easily done with a fork).

4Broil for another 4 to 5 minutes, until it’s bubbling and golden brown on the top and flaky in the middle.

  • Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan. Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the fillets over and broil for a couple more minutes. Remove the fillets from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish.
