Oven Baked Tilapia
- 6 Tilapia fillets, rinsed and patted dry
- 2 T olive oil
- 2 T butter
- 1/2 C white wine
- Juice and zest from 1 large lemon
- 1 T dry parsley
- 1/2 T Paprika
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Pinch Cayenne Pepper
- Parmesan Cheese
Ready to go into the oven
I start by putting a fillet into each gratin dish and adding a dizzle or two of olive oil. I take the 2 pads of butter and cut into 9 pieces, allowing for 3 pieces of butter per fillet. Splash on some white wine, zest of lemon and then juice of lemon. Next add the dry seasonings/herbs, salt and pepper to taste and if you want, add a pinch of cayenne for a bit of spice to the zing, then finish with Parmesan!
I can cook six at a time!
Bake for about 20 - 25 minutes, making sure it is fully cooked through.
We served ours with grilled corn on the cob, a leafy salad and bread to soak up the sauce with!
Beautifully baked with an incredible sauce!
