Tilapia Roulade Recipe

I love a sliced roast beef or cheesy gooey pasta dish for Sunday Supper, but every so often I need to change things up and go for a lighter meal like this Tilapia Roulade with zucchini and parmesan.

Don’t worry, it has crunchy garlic and butter bread crumbs in the stuffing and on top to make this more than worthy of your Sunday dinner.

Eating fish in our house has not always happened. Period. Even I didn’t like fish, but over the past few years we’ve broadened our horizons and all six of us eat fish now, at least the white flakey kind.

We started with fish and chips like this Root Beer Battered Fish that my kids love, as well as panko and bread crumbs coated fish, like this Parmesan and Panko Fish. Battered, breaded or fried never fail to please around here.

Now that we are comfortable eating fish more regularly, I’ve tried to add some variety and vegetables, while keeping with the crunchy and cheesy that our family loves so much. This recipe is great because its baked instead of fried, making it that much easier to cook and clean up. Not to mention healthier, but with the amazing garlic bread crumb topping you will never know the difference.

Tilapia is a nice choice for serving a large family because of its low cost, but you can also use any thin filet of white fish. I like to put the fish in a large zip-top bag and roll over the filet with a rolling pin to loosen up the fibers and make it easier to form into a roll. This way I can avoid using toothpicks to close it up or the fish coming undone during baking.

Serve this up with some fluffy rice or mashed potatoes and no one will miss the chicken or beef!
