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. 

 


A sprinkling of Old Bay Seasoning makes this very flavorful and the cheesy topping makes is extra yummy.


Just sprinkle the Old Bay Seasoning evenly over the fish.  You can add more or less to suit your taste.


Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and cook fish about 4 minutes on each side.

Remove fillets from skillet and place on a prepared baking sheet.  Spread a thin layer of mayonnaise over each one and then sprinkle Asiago or Parmesan cheese over each one.  Broil for about 4 minutes until the cheese is melted and fish is starting to brown.
