Asiago/Parmesan Tilapia in 20 Minutes or Less!

READY IN: 20mins


  • 12 -16
    ounces tilapia fillets (thawed)
  • 12 - 1
    lemon (juiced!)
  • 1 -2
    tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 14
    cup shredded parmesan cheese (Kraft or store-brand in green canister is okay, freshly shredded or grated is even better!)
  • black peppercorns, freshly ground (to taste!)
  • 4
    tablespoons shredded asiago cheese


  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Spray a 13x9 Pyrex dish with cooking spray.
  • Combine lemon juice, mayonnaise, parmesan cheese, and black pepper in a bowl. (I guesstimated the ingredient amounts in a Pyrex measuring cup, squeezing in the lemon juice first, then adding the remaining ingredients ~ EXCEPT the asiago cheese ~ add that last after the fish bakes!).
  • Place thawed tilapia fillets in baking dish ~ top with mayo/parmesan cheese mixture ~ spread to cover fillets.
  • Bake at 425F for 10-12 minutes, just until fish flakes.
  • Top baked fillets with grated asiago cheese ~ (about one tablespoon per fillet).
  • Bake 5 more minutes until asiago cheese is lightly browned.
  • For a super fast meal, I served this with canned mexi-corn and black beans combined together with a sprinkling of garlic powder and a few dashes of cayenne pepper, and microwaved for two minutes!
