“Ahhhh, I just had to put my zaar name on this one. I finally came up wtih one heck of a recipe, in my opinion and wanted to share it. One night, I was tired of measuring stuff out and trying to find a new way to cook my fish, so I combined some of my favorite flavors and came up with this. I'm thinking I may add a bit of ground red pepper to it too for a bit of a bite. Added: thanks for the great reviews!!! A note, I haven't used the dry garlic lately, as I'm really enjoying the freshly minced. I did try elephant garlic, because I got a ton of it free from a local farmer and it turned out much milder, but I liked it better with regular ol' garlic!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 ounces tilapia fillets
  • 12 teaspoon garlic, minced (the dry, minced garlic is what I have been using when in a hurry)
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 12 teaspoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon parmesan cheese (I use veggie parm)
  • 1 dash sea salt
  • cooking spray


  1. Preheat oven to 400. Rinse tilapia and pat dry.
  2. Spray a casserole dish with Pam spray and set fish in it.
  3. Sprinkle seasonings over fish in the order they are listed.
  4. Place in oven. Cook for 8 minutes or until fish flakes easily with a fork. I put it on broil the last TINY bit to get the cheese a little browned, but it's good without doing this too.
