Parmesan Tilapia

Parmesan Tilapia is a tasty dish that will even please picky eaters!

If your kids haven’t given the thumbs-up to fish yet, don’t give up! Try feeding them tilapia—a mild-tasting fish with a dense, yet flaky texture. Kids who don’t like “fishy”-tasting fish will enjoy the subtle, yet delicious, flavor of tilapia. Serve Parmesan Tilapia with a whole-grain roll or leftover brown rice from last night’s meal; toss in some shredded carrots and celery when reheating. Add a small green salad to complete the meal.
