Tilapia is a very mild flavored flat fish that takes seasonings very well. Here we have given this dish a Mediterranean flavor profile. This is a very simple dish to prepare and perfect for a dinner for two.
Turn TurboChef oven on by turning oven to ‘Bake’ on the cook wheel, select ‘COOKBOOK’ then under cookbook, select ‘Parmesan Crusted Tilapia’. Press ‘START’ to begin the preheat cycle.
On the stove top, caramelize red onions in about 1-2 Tbsp of olive oil in a sauté pan for about 10 minutes. In a separate sauté pan, par-cook red potatoes in another 1-2 Tbsp of olive oil for about 3-4 minutes until potatoes are just beginning to soften.
To prepare the Parmesan Crusted Tilapia:
On a plate, mix parmesan cheese and bread crumbs together. Bread top side of the Tilapia in the cheese and bread crumb mixture and set aside. Spray a sheet pan with Pam oil spray or use olive oil to oil the sheet pan. Mound the par-cooked potatoes into two portions on the sheet pan. Evenly place caramelized onions and roasted red pepper strips on top of the potatoes. Top with a sprig of rosemary for flavor and aroma. Place Tilapia breaded side up on top of onions, potatoes and rosemary. Place sheet pan into the oven.
Press ‘START’ again and bake under ‘Parmesan Crusted Tilapia’ for 4 ½ minutes. Remove sheet pan from oven. Using a spatula place each serving onto a serving plate. Remove rosemary skewer and squeeze fresh lemon juice over each serving. Garnish with chanterelle mushrooms or kalamata olives and rosemary skewer if desired.
