Here is an awesome new Tilapia recipe. Easy to make. Not too expensive. Low in calories. Family friendly. Pretty to look at. Did I mention easy to make? Perfect for Shavuot!
We all know that fish is good for you, and tilapia is really popular! Here is an easy recipe that uses a little bit of grated parmesan for great taste, and some colorful and flavorful paprika for that eye catching appetizing appeal!
- 6 tilapia fillets
- ¼ cup lowfat mayonnaise
- ¼ cup grated parmesan
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- non-stick vegetable spray
- Preheat the oven to medium broil.
- Line a large cookie sheet with aluminum foil, then spray with non-stick vegetable spray. Place the tilapia fillets on the sheet leaving at least 1 inch between the fillets. Using a pastry brush or spatula, brush the fillets with mayonnaise. Evenly sprinkle the parmesan over the fillets, then dust with paprika. Broil for 20 minutes, until fillets are browned and completely cooked through. Serve with a crusty garlic bread and soup for a hearty meal!
- Serving Size: 6

Broiled Paprika Whitefish
Growing up, this fish was a staple dinner in our house. My mom (KIH) would buy large fillets of de-boned whitefish, sprinkle them with garlic powder, onion powder and paprika. When the fish was beautifully browned on top it was done. It was also fantastic cold as a leftover lunch the next day. She also used a spice called Shpritz- I haven’t found it lately but if you do, let me know please!
- 1 or 2 large whitefish fillets, deboned
- sea salt – to taste
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- nonstick vegetable spray
- Preheat oven to medium broil.
- Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick spray.
- Place fillet(s) on the baking sheet.
- Sprinkle lightly with salt, then onion powder, garlic powder and paprika.
- Broil for 15-20 minutes until the top of the fish is browned and completely cooked through.

I’m sad to say that although I literally nearly put myself in traction exercising last week, I haven’t lost any weight. Sad day.
