Something From Pinterest

Kari & the kiddos came over to hang out yesterday.
They stayed for dinner & she helped me fix the meal.

I Actually Made Something I Pinned On Pinterest
When I saw this recipe on Pinterest I immediately knew I would try it.

Tilapia Parmesan
Pinned Image

2 lbs tilapia fillets (orange roughy, cod or red snapper can be substituted)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 tablespoons butter , room temperature
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
3 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
1/4 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
black pepper
1 dash hot pepper sauce

Directions:
1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2
In buttered 13-by-9-inch baking dish or jellyroll pan, lay fillets in single layer.
3
Do not stack fillets.
4
Brush top with juice.
5
In bowl combine cheese, butter, mayonnaise, onions and seasonings.
6
Mix well with fork.
7
Bake fish in preheated oven 10 to 20 minutes or until fish just starts to flake.
8
Spread with cheese mixture and bake until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
9
Baking time will depend on the thickness of the fish you use.
10
Watch fish closely so that it does not overcook.


I did not have lemon juice.  I substituted Miracle Whip for mayonnaise.

Kari mixed the ingredients . . .
and spread it on the Tilapia.

As you can see our dish doesn't look like the picture from Pinterest.
Next time I will use mayonnaise & see if that makes a difference in the browning.
I even baked it longer than the recommended 5 minutes.
It was very tasty and I will make it again. 

Thanks for stopping by today, hope you'll visit again soon!
Happy pinning everyone!

Sounds delish and quite good for you, too! Unfortunately I am allergic to white fish---bummer!

Look's good ya'll....as Paula Dean would say.

Hi Carol, looks good to me. We should eat more fish.
I baked a pinterest recipe today too, the cinnamon roll cake that seems like everyone has pinned. Jeff liked it very much, but I thought it was entirely too sweet, and I would rather eat sweets than anything. I don't plan on making it again.

Now that looks so good, we are eating less fat and red meat, so I will try this.
Thanks

You should be proud to make something that you pinned! I pin all the time and haven't made a thing! It sure is inspiring though.

Oh my... I don't think I should admit this, because then you will know how long it has been that I visited your blog, but I saw this post on my blog reading list and said, "Hmmm, I think that's a person that I haven't visited their blog in quite a while. Let me go over there." So I came here to see... This is MY CAROL from Pinterest!!!!!!! Oh, I pin so many things from you on there! LOL! I apologize for not visiting your blog more often. I have all I can do to write a post myself for my own blog, plus visiting those who visit me, so I am CONSTANTLY behind with visiting other blogs that I follow. But, may I have points for repinning your stuff on Pinterest??? ;)
Best,
Gloria

Brian cooks Tilapia on the grill and Natalie loves it. I have cooked it on my George Foreman grill, but not as good as Brian's.
She also loves her MiMi's fried catfish.
