  • 4 tilapia fillets
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese (divided)
  • 3 Tbsp low fat mayo
  • 3 Tbsp 0% Greek yogurt
  • 1 lime (zested and juiced)
  • 1/2 Tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 Tsp dried oregano
  • 1/2 Tsp salt
  • 1/4 Tsp pepper


Serve these tilapia fillets with some brown rice or quinoa and a vegetable of your choice for a complete meal. They would also be delicious over a salad or stuffed in a pita or wrap for lunch. The marinade mixture would also work great on salmon.


1. Combine 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese and remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Rub tilapia fillets all over with mayo mixtures and place on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil and sprayed with cooking spray. Let marinade for about 20 minutes.
2. Preheat oven to 350. Scoop any marinade on the sheet onto top of fillets and bake tilapia fillets for about 8-10 minutes.
3. Remove from oven and switch to broil. Sprinkle remaining parmesan on tilapia and broil for about 5 minutes, or until browned.
