Preparation Time: 5 minutes. Baking Time: 10-12 minutes
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon each salt and black pepper
4-6 Tilapia Fillets (about 1 pound)
Preheat the oven to 400'F. If you want to increase the ease of clean-up, line a 9"x13"x2" baking pan with aluminum foil. A glass baking pan without foil can also be used. Spread the olive oil on the foil, or in the pan. Place the fish in a single layer in the pan. Carefully turn the fish over so both sides of the fish are coated with the olive oil. In a small bowl, combine the parmesan cheese, paprika, salt and pepper. Spoon about 1 Tablespoon of this mixture over each fish fillet, or use it all if desired. Bake 10-12 minutes or until the thickest part of the fish is opaque.
