Lemon Parmesan crusted tilapia is a favorite in our family. If you ask anyone in our house what their favorite tilapia recipe is they will quickly tell you it is lemon Parmesan crusted tilapia. And it is. This simple recipe bring such pure and unforgettable flavor to this easy to cook fish. We love making this dish any time of year and typically always pair it with a salad and another light side dish.
This tilapia is not only tasty but healthy and allergy-friendly as well. We have two gluten-free children in the house and this dish complies. And for our dairy-free child we just omit the Parmesan. We hope you enjoy it!
