Even people who do not like fish enjoy this dish. Although it's quick to make it tastes like it takes a lot of preparation. Test kitchen tip: Feel free to use any thin light fish fillet. We enjoyed this with yellow tail snapper.
• 1 / 2 cup mayonnaise
• 1 / 2 cup parmesan cheese
• 4 (8-ounce) tilapia fillets
• Salt and fresh-ground black pepper, to taste
• 2 tablespoons fine-chopped fresh dill, cilantro or parsley
Spray a baking pan with no-stick cooking spray. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the mayonnaise and cheese. Season the fish fillets with salt and pepper and place in prepared pan. Bake 5 minutes. Turn the fish over and cover with a portion of the mayonnaise mixture.
Bake another 3 minutes. Then turn the broiler on and cook the fish until the topping is golden brown. Watch the fish carefully so it doesn't burn. Remove from oven, cover and let sit 5 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with chopped herbs. Makes 4 servings.
