Tilapia Recipes

Here's a link to a great tilapia recipe from that Kevin and I tried the other night: Broiled Tilapia Parmesan. Basically you top the tilapia with a parmesan cheese mixture and cook it until the topping is browned. Be sure to make plenty of the topping so the fish is well covered.

Kevin and I have another favorite tilapia recipe that we picked up from a couple of our geology classmates. It's an incredibly simple recipe that I've imaginatively dubbed "Jennifer and Ryan's Geology-Style Tilapia."

Jennifer and Ryan's Geology-Style Tilapia
Talapia (whitefish) fillets
Kraft Sun-Dried Tomato Dressing
Aluminum foil

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
-Place one fillet on aluminum foil.
-Cover fillet in dressing.
-Fold foil into packet around fish.
-Repeat for each fillet.
-Place all fillet packets onto a baking sheet and put in oven.
-Bake fish for approximately 20 minutes (until it flakes with a fork).

Notes: You can replace the Kraft Sun-Dried Tomato Dressing with another vinegarette-type dressing if you wish. This recipe can also be cooked on a grill (that's actually how Jennifer and Ryan made it).

One more thing about tilapia - according to Wikipedia, they're actually a type of cichlid (a generally freshwater African fish). I wonder if Kevin has realized yet that they're cichlids (he use to have some cichlids as pets).
