Parmesan​ Crusted Tilapia

This one is definitely a keeper in the recipe file!

I love tilapia!!! It’s such a mild, tender fish.  Add some cheese and pesto… OMG!  This one was so good I got a text from my husband saying so… #husbandapproved!!! lol


  • 4 Tilapia Filets
  • 1/2 cup finely grated parmesan cheese (I used Kroger Brand)
  • 2~3 Tbsp of Basil Pesto (I used Kroger’s Private Selection)
  • 2~3 organic Roma Tomatoes (diced)
  • 1 bag frozen Simple Truth Red Quinoa & Brown Rice with Garlic, Olive Oil & Sea Salt (cooked according to package)
  • 1 Tbsp of olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

To prepare,

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Pat dry each tilapia filet with a paper towel.  Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.  Rub with olive oil, S&P to taste.  Sprinkle grated parmesan cheese evenly over each filet.

Bake for ~15 min until fish is flaky.  Depends on the size of filet.  Also, if the cheese isn’t brown, broil for an additional 1~2 min until browned.

Place fish into the bento box.  Spread ~1/2 Tbsp or so of basil pesto (a little goes a long way).  Top with fresh diced tomatoes.  Pair with 1/4 cup of the simple truth quinoa and rice.

Amazing!  It reheats in the microwave amazing too!
