I have to tell you something, Big is not a fan of fish. When I mention that fish is on the menu, I often get eye rolls. Does that happen in your house? I have learned to ignore the eye rolling and put it on the menu plan anyway! Let me tell you something, after one bite of easy baked tilapia parmesan, I heard something I thought I would never hear. Big said, “You can put this on the menu anytime!” Had I not been sitting, I think I would have fallen down!
I bet your family members will feel the same way after they taste this tilapia! From start to finish, this recipe took me about 10 minutes. The rice side dish that I made (recipe will be posted next week) took longer than the fish.
