Tilapia with Asiago Cheese

Tilapia is low in calories and contains omega-3's making it an excellent choice for a delicious heart healthy meal.  Seafood in general tends to be high in important nutrients like magnesium, potassium, zinc, and iron.  Tilapia is mild tasting as far as fish goes and it is relatively inexpensive.  Nutrition experts say you should eat fish 2-3 times a week.  This recipe is also low-carb as well.  So what are you waiting for?    Parmesan cheese can also be substituted for the Asiago cheese.
