This easy oven baked Parmesan crusted tilapia is just wonderful with a crispy, flavorful Parmesan crust from only a few everyday ingredients.

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees convection. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Brush with oil.
  2. Wash and pat dry tilapia.
  3. Mix parmesan, paprika, parsley, salt and pepper in a shallow pan.
  4. Brush tilapia with oil on both sides and then dredge in the parmesan mixture patting the coating on. Place on the baking sheet.
  5. Place on the baking sheet. Take remaining parmesan mixture an pat on top of the already coated fish.
  6. Bake for about 10-12 minutes until flaky.


  • You can use fresh or frozen tilapia that is completely thawed.
  • The quality of the Parmesan cheese matters a lot in this recipe.
  • I like to add a little extra topping just before going into the oven.
