What's For Dinner: Parmesan-Crusted Tilapia

Another trip to Whole Foods, another pre-prepared tilapia filet. Since Dustin and I weren't that hungry once dinner time rolled around, we decided to share one filet. I baked the filet in a 400 degree oven for about 15 minutes (cooking time should average between 12 and 15 minutes). I served haricots verts aside the tilapia. To make the haricots verts, I blanched fresh green beans in boiling water for 2 minutes, then removed them from the water and placed them in a bowl. I topped the green beans with a few dots of butter and seasoned them with several hefty sprinkles of a parmesan pesto seasoning from Boulder's Savory Spice Shop.

One aspect I like about trying pre-seasoned fish filets is that doing so gives me the chance to figure out what combinations of seasonings I like. Then, later on I can make my own seasoned filets using the pre-seasoned filets I've eaten as inspiration. The parmesan-crusted tilapia was definitely a winner, and I will have to try to make my own version someday soon -- there are already a few tilapia filets in the freezer just waiting to be a part of a creative recipe!
