Stuffed Tilapia is one of my favorite quick and easy seafood recipes. Serve this tasty stuffed tilapia dish with rice or baked potatoes.

Yield: Makes 4 stuffed tilapias

  • 4 tilapia fillets, about 500 g
  • 4 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
  • 125 g cream cheese at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika powder
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and black pepper to taste

Heat the olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add chopped onions and saute until they are tender, about 8 minutes. Add garlic and saute, stirring occasionally for 3 more minutes. Remove from the heat. Add cream cheese, parsley and paprika powder; mix well.

Add the bread crumbs and combine well, set the stuffing aside.
