The Fourth of July is Over… it‚Äôs Time for Some Fish!
I love cooking (and eating) burgers, steaks, and chicken, but after a carnivorous holiday, I like a change-up pitch and that‚Äôs where fish comes in. ¬†
I love fish.¬† Rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and lower in fat than many meats, fish can be a tasty alternative. ¬† Having said that, I especially like a good fish recipe when it is easy to make, quick to get on the table, and is delicious.¬†
Keeping with the baseball metaphors, this recipe covers all the bases. ¬† This fish recipe calls for Tilapia but you can substitute Orange Roughy if you like and it is just as delicious.
On a personal note, while the fish is really good, it is the simple little sauce that complements it so well and will send your taste buds over the outfield fence. ¬† ¬† ¬†
Tilapia Lemon Parmesan ¬†
¬† 1 ¬ľ-pound Tilapia fillets ¬†
2 Tsp butter or margarine-softened ¬†
1 Tsp fresh lemon juice ¬†
Lemon Parmesan Sauce: ¬†
¬Ĺ-Cup mayo ¬† 1 Tbs fresh lemon juice ¬†
¬ľ-Cup grated Parmesan cheese ¬†
Sauce:¬† Combine all sauce ingredients until well blended ¬†
Directions: ¬† Rinse the fish fillets in cold water and drain thoroughly (I blot them with a paper towel).¬† Top with the butter and lemon juice (I mix these together).¬† Place the fillets under the broiler (about 4 inches away from the heat source) for about 5-6 minutes until fish is opaque and flakes easily when tested with a fork.¬†
Remove from the oven and top each portion with 1-2 TBS of the Lemon-Parmesan sauce.¬† Place under the broiler an additional 2-3 minutes or until sauce begins to puff and turn brown in spots. ¬†
That‚Äôs it!¬† Place the fillets on plates and garnish with a lemon slice and fresh parsley. ¬†
Note:¬† The first time I made the sauce I went strictly by the recipe.¬† The next time I improvised on the measurements.¬† My version wasn’t nearly as good.¬†
Tip: ¬†Stick to the recipe.
I think you will really like this surprisingly good, quick, and delicious meal from Tyent USA. ¬†
