Tilapia Parmesan Saute

The great thing about tilapia is that you can buy individually wrapped frozen fillets in the freezer section at the grocery store. I often will just pull out one or two for dinner and a package will last me the entire month. Tilapia is a nice fish to "ease into" cooking. It is really hard to mess it up & it defrosts quickly in a bowl of room temperature water.

What you'll need:

4 - 4 oz. frozen tilapia fillets
1 tbsp olive oil
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
2 tbsp parsley flakes
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp garlic powder

Mix parmesan cheese, garlic powder, parsley flakes; set aside. Heat a large saute pan and add olive oil, butter, and lemon. Saute fillets 2-3 minutes per side until white and flaky. Sprinkle cheese mixture on fillets and saute each side for another minute, then serve & enjoy!
