I make this with talapia for my parents. The Mediterranean Spanish flavors make a refreshing light meal on a summer night. I us Italian dressing in this recipe because it is a great way to add flavor and not just fat. it has many of the seasonings already incorporated and speeds up the recipe. You can make your own or use a good quality bottled dressing (Newman’s Organic is a good one).
For the fish: 4-6 fillets
Mix 3 TB Parmesan with 1 TB hot paprika
Brush fish with Italian dressing, about 2 TB will suffice
Sprinkle tops with parm and pap mixture
Broil on HIGH for 7 minutes. Turn off broiler and let fish rest in hot oven for up to 6 minutes while the sauce finishes.
For the Sauce:
1 bunch parsley chopped
4 spring onions
2 TB Italian dressing
3 TB citrus champagne vinegar (or 1 TB citrus juice plus 2 TB white wine vinegar)
3 TB water
3 TB Parmesan cheese
Simmer all ingredients in a sauce pan and stir over low heat until sauce bubbles and aroma of onions is released. Ladle over fish and serve.
Special thanks to my brother who had his dinner ripped away so I could photograph it. I need to photograph BEFORE I serve it.
