Golden Flax-Parm Lemon Crusted Tilapia

Hmm.. I don’t know what was up with me today but I was yearning for  some good ol’ fried food. Mind you, I don’t normally care for anything fried, not even chicken wings. Maybe it was my mother’s mention of Long John Silver’s Fried White Fish Fillet we used to eat all the time way back then. Well whatever it was, I whipped up a healthier, tastier version that I knew I wouldn’t regret eating later on. 
Flax Parmesan Lemon Crusted Tilapia


1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp parmesan cheese
1 tsp flaxseed meal
Mrs. Dash Tomato, Garlic, Basil
Garlic seasoning
1 tsp olive oil
1 clove garlic

3/4 c broccoli


1. Pre-heat oven to 375F
2. Rinse tilapia fillet, lay flat on a cutting board and add lemon juice and olive oil.
3. Sprinkle about 2 dashes of Mrs. Dash Tomato, Garlic, Basil seasoning and Garlic seasoning.
4. Place in oven for about 30 minutes.
5. In the meantime, spray pan with non stick spray. Add 1 clove of minced garlic and sautee.
    Add brocoli (already cooked).
6. Remove the tilapia from oven, add flaxseed meal and parmesan cheese. Turn switch to a high
    broil and put the tilapia back into oven for about 2 minutes so the cheese and flaxseed meal
    becomes crusted.
6. Add a squeeze of lemon on the crusted tilapia and broccoli and enjoy!

Tell me who needs fast, junky, fried food when you can make yourself a fresh fillet of crusted tilapia from your very own kitchen. It’s just as golden, and crunchy as a any other fried fish, except here’s the secret … it’s much much healthier 😉
