So, finals week is… happening. We know everyone is busy but we hope you still are finding time to eat meals other than coffee and candy! We are both so close to being finished and can’t wait to finish out this semester! Why you ask…?
Because we’re going on our honeymoon! That’s right – we leave on Sunday for THREE WEEKS in Europe! We’re going to be spending most of our time in Dublin (visiting some of Declan’s family while we’re there) and we’ll also spend some time in Galway and Paris. Who wouldn’t be excited about Christmas in Paris and New Years in Dublin?! We are going to try to post some pictures of food and our travels over the break! We hope everyone has a great winter break and gets lots of rest for the upcoming spring semester (except Declan who will be working full-time at his new job).
This recipe seriously took less than fifteen minutes and was amazingly delicious. Tilapia is a great starter-fish because it doesn’t taste fishy at all!
We don’t even like fish that much, but this recipe changed our minds!
- Prep time – less than 5 minutes
- Cook time – 10 minutes
- Servings – 4
- 4 tilapia filets (if you are using frozen filets, make sure they are completely thawed!)
- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- Old Bay seasoning (optional unless you’re from Maryland like Erica)
1. Preheat your oven’s broiler. Line your broiling pan with aluminum foil.
2. Combine all ingredients except the tilapia and old bay.
3. Arrange tilapia filets on pan in a single layer. Sprinkle lightly with Old Bay. Broil a few inches from the heat for 3 minutes.
4. Remove from oven, gently flip over the filets, and broil for another 2-3 minutes.
5. Remove the filets from the oven and cover them with the parmesan cheese mixture. Broil for another 2 minutes or until the topping is browned and the fish flakes easily with a fork.
6. Serve with a side of rice and veggies and enjoy!
