Turkey Time with Annika & Nick

One thing I have always wanted is my own cooking show. I love teaching people things (I'm studying to be a professor, duh.) and I looooooooooove to cook! So for the rest of this week, I have something special planned for you guys!

Everyday this week, Nick and I will be sharing some of our favorite recipes to use for your holiday! So to kick off the week, lets pretend it's Wednesday November 23rd. When you have a ton of family in your house and little to no desire to cook a huge meal, the day before you cook another huge meal. Solution?

Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

Preparation Time - 10 minutes
Cooking Time - 10-12 minutes

Simple, extremely tasty and ridiculously fast!

  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregeno
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tilapia fillets (a little more than 1 lb)
  • 1 lemon, cut into wedges

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees

Mix dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl

Lightly drizzle the fillets with olive oil and cover both sides of the fillet with the dry mixture

Place coated tilapia onto a pan coated with tin foil and bake for 10-12 minutes or until the thickest part of the fish is white and opaque.

Serve to your guests and prepare for them to be wowed!!

For the perfect side dish to this delicious meal, check back tomorrow for Nick's signature Mini Caprese Salad!

I dont really groove on fish...could this used on Chicken? It certainly sounds good.

I wouldn't see why not! You just might need to adjust the cooking times since fish cooks so much faster than chicken.

I've always wanted a cooking show too! Perhaps, as you're in Orlando, we should get together and create a blog-style cookery podcast / video in the future. My brother and I do it when I go home to England. We go out and buy lots of fancy schmancy ingredients, a couple of bottles of wine and just let the camera roll while we pretend we have an audience of millions ;)
