Garlic Parmesan Tilapia

Garlic Parmesan Tilapia Recipe
Today’s recipe is one of those that kind of happens by accident, and you are SO glad that it did. I knew that I wanted to make us tilapia with veggies and rice, but I was sick of the same old tilapia with lemon pepper seasoning. I looked through the fridge to see what we had (not much lol) and I found a block of parmesan and some garlic. Well, I thought, I could make something out of that…..garlic parmesan you see that all the time! So, I put everything together and threw it on the grill, half expecting it to be just alright when it was done.


  • Tilapia Filets
  • Olive Oil
  • Shredded parmesan (or a block and a grater)
  • Minced garlic- fresh, in a jar, or dried in the spice aisle
  • Salt, pepper, crushed red pepper
  • Sides- I made balsamic asparagus and some Near East wild rice

  1. First, you are going to want to make yourself a tin foil pouch- like pictured. You just fold all sides of the tin foil until you have a little foil dish.
  2. You will want to put some olive oil down first so that the fish doesn’t stick to the foil.
  3. Coat your tilapia in olive oil, using a basting brush.
  4. Sprinkle garlic, parmesan, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper on to both sides of the fish.
  5. Once you have placed your fish in your tin foil pouch, add a little extra parmesan to the top.
  6. Grill on medium/high until tilapia is cooked through thoroughly.
  7. Serve with your choice of sides!
  8. NOTE: This dish can also be baked in the oven if you don’t have a grill!
