Baked tilapia with garlic and evoo

Another quick and easy fish recipe for lent. Found on my iPhone all recipes spinner app, this was not only easy but very tasty! I had just gotten 2 fabulous tilapia fillets from the seafood market and was excited to find this recipe. I did take some of the reviewers suggestions to add a bit of parm cheese on top and broil for a few minutes towards the end. That was perfect!


2 4 ounce tilapia filets
2 cloves garlic crushed
1.5 tbsp of evoo
1/2 an onion chopped
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1-2 tbsp parm cheese

Rub the fish with the crushed garlic, then place them in a shallow dish. Spoon the evoo over te fish until they are coated. Place the onion on top of the fish. Cover and refrigerate overnight. (I did only an hour and it was fine)
Preheat oven to 350. Transfer to a new shallow baking dish and sprinkle with salt and pepper and cayenne pepper as desired. Bake for 30 mins. During the last few minutes turn the broiler on and top with parm cheese. Broil until the cheese is a golden brown. This creates a nice crusty top. Serve immediately!
