Broiled Tilapia Parmesan


Fish is not a favorite of mine but I know it is supposed to be so good for us that I try to find recipes that will please the family—me included!  I’m not sure where I found this recipe online, but it had great reviews and claimed to be easy.  So you know I am a sucker for something that is easy and yummy.  I printed it out purchased some frozen tilapia and then almost a month goes by before we have a chance to make it.

Saturday night I finally tried out the recipe, tweaking it with some of the review comment suggestions.  Everyone loved it and since the bag of tilapia was a 10 lb bag, we will be having it again soon.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Preheat your oven’s broiler.  I used the Lo setting on our broiler.

Line a broiling pan with aluminum foil and spray the foil with cooking spray.

In a small bowl mix together:

  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened (I actually melted mine in the microwave)
  • 3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery salt

After mixing the above well, set it aside.

Arrange in a single layer on the prepared pan:

  • 2 lbs of tilapia.  (for us this was about 8 fillets)

Season the fish to taste with:

  • Old Bay seasoning

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 cheese mixture on the top side.

Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork.
