Back when we lived in Logan, my freezer had a giant bag full of Tilapia fillets, and the only way I knew to prepare them was with a dijon mustard, cheese crust. After about 3 times making this for my husband, he let me know that it was time to try something else. If only I had this recipe! Good thing Fred Meyers is only minutes away from my new place! Thanks for providing this recipe, Britta, it looks scrumptious!
MEDITERRANEAN HERB TILAPIA
1 t minced garlic
1 t marjoram leaves
3/4 t dry ground mustard
3/4 t basil
3/4 t oregano
1/2 t coarse ground black pepper
6 tilapia fillets (about 1 1/2 lbs)
1/2 t salt
1/3 c butter, melted
1 1/2 c chopped spinach leaves
1/3 c finely chopped red bell pepper
3 Tbsp Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Place fish on foil-lined shallow baking pan. Sprinkle with salt. Mix butter and all of the spices in medium bowl. Brush fish with about a tablespoon of the seasoned butter. Stir spinach, pepper, and cheese into remaining seasoned butter. Divide mixture evenly among fish fillets, pressing lightly so mixture adheres to top of fish. Bake 15 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
