I can put together a meal of tilapia and vegetables (like steamed broccoli and coleslaw) in less than the time it would take to boil up a pot of pasta! My kids really like this recipe too, which is a definite bonus. Broiled Parmesan Tilapia is also low carb and gluten free.
If you tend to be a distractable cook, it is a good idea to use a timer to help you remember that you are broiling. That way you don’t end up with a very smoky kitchen! I sometimes set the timer for just 1 minute and reset it every time I open the oven door, just to be sure I don’t lose track.
There are many health benefits to eating fish. I am thankful that Easy Broiled Parmesan Tilapia is a simple way to incorporate it into our family’s diet!
