Parmesan Crusted Golden Tile 

Ingredients

Oyster crackers
Butter
Mayonnaise
One and a half to 2 lbs of golden tilefish fresh or frozen
Paprika
Ocean salt
Pepper
Fresh cilantro
Parmesan cheese freshly shredded
Fresh lemon cut in half

If frozen , thaw & Squeeze a half of a fresh lemon on to the fillets .Let lemon sit on fish for bout 10 to 15 seconds then the rinse the golden tile fish off for 10 seconds under fresh cold water. Remove any remaining bones in the fish. Set aside

Take oyster crackers (about a fourth a cup) smash them in a ziplock sandwich baggie & set aside. Take fresh cilantro rinse it off and snip the stems off mince the cilantro & set aside..

Take a 13 x 9 glass baking dish, place the fish in the dish & preheat the oven to 400°

While the oven is pre heating, take one large tablespoon of mayonnaise concentrating most of the mayonnaise on the top of the fillet ( as it melts it will sink into the fish keeping it moist while it is cooking ) It’s also recommended you flip fillet over and put a small amount of the underside of the fillet. Take freshly ground ocean salts to top of fillet and add some freshly crushed black pepper.. Also spply a shakes or two of paprika. Add Take 2 tablespoons of butter to a microwave safe container or bowl and melt in microwave at (low heat of 4 ) for 20 sec then pour on top of fish. Apply 1/8 cup freshly shredded Parmesan and the crushed oyster crackers ( If you don’t want to oyster crackers to get dark you can always add them in the middle of the cooking time for a lighter brown appearance ( after about 8 to 10 mins of cooking )

Put into over once oven is pre heated (at 400 degrees F) . Depending on the thickness of the fillets you will need to cook the golden tile fish in the oven anywhere between 17 to 20 minutes . I start checking the fish after the first 14 minutes just to ensure that I’m not over cooking. You will know that fish is done, when you can lightly flake it with a fork.
