Broiled Parmesan Tilapia

Tonight's dinner was a simple one.   It's payday, I have yet to get my menus written up and the grocery list done so I turned to my freezer for help.

I had a 2 lb package of Tilapia Filets which I hadn't used yet, so out they came, thawed they were, and then thrown placed into the broiler with this delicious topping.

The recipe is one that I found a while ago on All Recipes.  I wanted something different to make with the fish aside from my usual way of preparing them.  These came out great and I think they'll be made many more times as it got the approval from the family, even the picky 12 year old that doesn't really care for fish or seafood.

Broiled Parmesan Tilapia


1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon celery salt
2 pounds tilapia fillets

Preheat your oven's broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.

In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with dried basil, pepper, onion powder and celery salt. Mix well and set aside.

Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan.

Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the fillets over and broil for a couple more minutes. Remove the fillets from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side.

Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish.
