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.
