I know you’ll love this tilapia dish, not just because of how good it is but also because of how fast it can be made.


Tilapia really doesn’t have much of a fishy odor and it has a very mild taste. Case in point – my husband despises all seafood. No shrimp, no salmon, no clams, no crabs, no lobster, no nuthin’. That all being said, he really, really likes this crusted parmesan tilapia! I can’t even remember how I got him to try it initially, but since then he has actually asked for me to make it. So, it must be good, right?


Parmesan Crusted Tilapia


I use my favorite seasoning blend for this dish. It is labeled as roasted vegetables and fries seasoning, however, I use it for so many things in addition to veggies!


Roast Vegetable Spice Blend


This blend of seasonings is fantastic on chicken, pork and fish. I’ve never even tried it on fries, to be honest, but I am sure it would be absolutely fabulous. If you aren’t able to get this particular seasoning blend, you can create a similar blend on your own by combining:

  • If you use frozen tilapia, make sure to defrost the fillets before putting them under the broiler.
  • You can easily swap the lemon juice for fresh squeezed lemon.
  • You can substitute plain Greek yogurt for the avocado mayo. You could also use regular mayo, but it may no longer be a gluten-free dish, so be sure to check the label.
  • You’ll want to add foil to the baking sheet for easy cleanup.

Start by lining a baking sheet with foil and lightly spraying with non-stick cooking spray.


In a small bowl, combine the parmesan cheese, softened butter, avocado mayo, lemon juice, seasoning blend, and salt and pepper in small bowl, then set aside.


Move the oven rack to the top position, and turn the broiler on high. You’ll want to place the thawed tilapia on a foil-lined baking sheet and broil for 4 minutes.


Place Tilapia on Foil Lined Baking Sheet


Carefully remove the tray of tilapia from the oven. Turn the fish fillets over and coat the top of each with the parmesan mixture. Return to the broiler for 4 additional minutes.


This is delicious Parmesan Crusted Tilapia is going to make a quick, easy and delicious dinner any night of the week.
