Cheesy Baked Crusted Tilapia

Just like many of you, we enjoy a good baked crusted Tilapia dinner sometimes. My recipe for Cheesy Baked Crusted Tilapia has only 7 ingredients with lots of flavor!

It is always nice to find a ‘new’ recipe to jazz up baked fish! One of my favorite things to do in the kitchen is create recipes or adapt them to my families tastes.

Cheesy Baked Crusted Tilapia recipe

I came across a recipe for Cheese Doodle Crusted Tilapia and knew I had to adapt it for our tastes. They suggest frying the fish, we choose to bake it. Some of our preferred spices are also different. You can play with the recipe and personalize it for your family as well.

I generally serve California vegetables or homemade mashed potatoes with our baked fish dinners. This time, my hubby wanted to try a frozen broccoli and pepper mixture.

Do you own one of those little food choppers in the picture? (affiliate link) It is without a doubt the most handy tool in my kitchen. I have 2 of them because let’s face it, sometimes we get carried away in the kitchen.

I’m a big fan of recipes with lots of flavor and few ingredients. Are you? I also like the idea of cook once, eat twice. Those are the kinds of recipes I like to share.
