Tomato Basil Parmesan Tilapia – 15 Minute Meal

Tomato Basil Parmesan Tilapia 15 minute meal


A lot of people eat fish during Lent.  If that describes your family, you may be looking for some new recipes to try.  And even if you don’t eat fish on Fridays during Lent, you will want to make this quick meal.

For this recipe I used tilapia and a McCormick Tomato Basil Recipe and Seasoning Mix packet that was meant for salmon.  I know.  I’m a rebel swapping out the fish like that.

The Tomato Basil Recipe and Seasoning Mix is both full of flavor and full of crunch.  The kids love having a crunchy coating on their fish.  They really eat up the fish I make if it’s both crunchy and has good flavor.  If I leave it fairly plain, only using salt and pepper to season, they’re less likely to eat it.

Tomato Basil Recipe and Seasoning Mix was a hit with all of us.  And since I had some Parmesan in the fridge too, I added some of that to the top.

This meal is very easy to put together.  Once the fish is thawed, you can have dinner ready in about 15 minutes.

Easy Dijon Tarragon Tilapia – 5 minute prep in morning, 20 minute bake at dinner

Tilapia is so quick and easy to make.  Especially, if you don’t even bother to thaw it.

For this meal, I prepped it early in the day and put the pan in the fridge.  It only took a few minutes to put together.  And at dinner time, all I had to do was turn on the oven and put the pan in to bake.

You could use this prep-fridge-bake system for all kinds of different seasonings, but this time I chose an easy, buttery lemon juice sauce with Dijon mustard, garlic and tarragon.

Chili Lime Panko Tilapia and a $50 VISA card Giveaway!

Would you believe that delicious fish took only 2 ingredients?  It’s true!

The secret is Kraft Fresh Take.  They are a cheese and crumb (some have panko crumbs, some bread crumbs) mix.  You can do all kinds of things with them.  I chose to do a simple coating on tilalpia and then bake.  It made a crispy crust on the fish and added lots of flavor too.  My family loved it!  [Read more…]

Grilled Fish Sandwich with Homemade Tartar Sauce

Sometimes, when I sit down to write up a recipe post, I can’t find anything to say.  This is one of those times.

Because, really, the beauty of this sandwich is that it’s so simple.

Grilled fish that cooks up quick on a George Foreman or other indoor grill.

Cajun seasoning  kicks the flavor up a notch or three.

Homemade tartar sauce that is just mayo with a little sweet relish stirred in.

Put it on a bun, serve it with fries and carrot sticks or salad.  It’s a little out of the ordinary, but casual and easy enough for a weeknight supper.

Tropical Tilapia with Pineapple Salsa and Coconut Rice – Easy & Special!

This is one of those dinners that tastes special, like you’ve gone to extra trouble.

Good news!  This dish is quick to fix.  I had it finished in about 30 minutes and that included time to line up ingredients, take photos and jot down my recipe.  Not bad.

I did start with another recipe as inspiration.  I wasn’t sure what should go into the Pineapple Salsa, so I searched Tasty Kitchen and came up with a recipe for Tropical Chicken and Coconut Rice Bowl.  It’s from Katie at The College Culinarian.

I wanted fish instead of chicken, so I turned the marinade into a sauce for the tilapia.  And I tweaked her salsa recipe a bit too.  The result was delicious!

Garlic Lime Tilapia

Oh my goodness!  Please go to your kitchens and make this for dinner tonight.  It is soooo delicious.  And it’s easy.  (If I had a nickel for every time I said that a recipe is easy, I would be rich.  Or, at least I’d have an extra 30 cents a week.)

The tilapia is seasoned and cooked in garlic butter with a splash of lime juice.  Divine!

Lemon Pepper Tilapia with Veggies on the Grill

I’ve done tilapia in a foil packet before, but this time I wanted to use the grill and more veggies.  Instead of making individual packets, I made a large one.  The fish and vegetables cooked perfectly in just 15-20 minutes.  Even though the foil was charred around the edges, the food didn’t burn at all.

Fish Tacos with Chipotle Dressing

Fish Tacos with Chipotle Sour Cream Sauce

It’s only been very recently that I’ve tasted fish tacos.  I’ve ordered them in two different restaurants, but I really wanted to try making them at home.  My first search for recipes called for expensive types of fish, like swordfish.  I kept looking though, and found a few recipes that use tilapia.  I combined the ideas of several recipes to create these and the result is easy and tasty.

Even the kids liked them.  At first they were skeptical, but I explained that fish tacos are different from regular tacos.  It’s not like you just substitute fish for the hamburger.  Low and behold, they tried them and they liked them too! [Read more…]

Tony’s Tilapia

Fish is such a fast and super easy thing to fix.  Often, when I fix tilapia I grill it on the George Foreman grill, but this time I decided to bake it.   Three ingredients and about 20 minutes later I had dinner on the table.
