This mom loves to cook

Hello! I'm Deirdre and I'm a stay at home mom to two boys. Cooking for a 6 and 4 year old- day in and day out can be the best job in the world, also the most frustrating. Trying to create not only kid friendly but husband and mom friendly meals is a challenge that I've readily accepted! My Foodie Mom blog is a record of the different recipes that I've tried in the kitchen, pictures of my ventures, and cool tricks I've picked up along the way. Cheers!

Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

This was one of those easy Tuesday night meals. I do my grocery shopping on Tuesdays, so that's usually the night that I'll cook seafood if I buy it. This took under 10 minutes to prepare, and that is always a plus.


  • 3/4cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • tilapia fillets (about 1 pound total)
  • lemon, cut into wedges
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees . 

In a shallow dish, combine the cheese with the paprika and parsley and season with salt and pepper. 

Drizzle the fish with olive oil and dredge in the cheese mixture. 

Place on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake until the fish is opaque in the thickest part, 10 to 12 minutes. 

Serve the fish with the lemon wedges.

I really enjoyed the fish prepared this way. My husband didn't like it though. So I guess you'll have to be the judge. Enjoy!
