Parmesan Broiled Tilapia

I'm pretty sure there was once a rule mandating that fish and cheese were not to be combined.  Maybe some old school Italian rule.  But paremsan and tilapia, or any mild white fish for that matter, go incredibly well together.  And it couldn't be easier.  Sprinkle some seasoned salt over your fish, heat up some EVOO in a pan, and cook 2 or 3 minutes per side, while your oven is preheating.  This entree takes about 15 minutes top to prepare.

Parmesan Broiled Tilapia
2 large tilapia or white fish filets
2 tsp seasoned salt (I used Curt's from Door County WI but use whatever you like!)
2 1/2 tbsp shredded parm, freshly grated or pre-grated, though fresh is preferable
2 tsp EVOO

Set your oven to broil.  While it's heating up, coat your fish on both sides with your seasoned salt.  Pour EVOO into saute pan and cook fish 2 or 3 min per side depending on how thick your fish is.  Transfer fish to a baking dish and sprinkle generously with parm, a sprinkle of black pepper would be great too.  Place in broiler for 3-5 minutes or until parm is starting to brown and bubble.  So delicious!  With a big helping of lemony asparagus, dinner is dunzo in minutes!

I actually like to buy frozen fish from Trader Joe's so I always have a healthy and super easy protein ready to go.  What's your favorite way to cook frozen fish?  I get sick of salmon pretty easily and am always looking for a nice flaky, mild white fish.  Let me know your favorite way to cook fish, and what your favorite kind of fish is!
