Step 1

Set oven to broiler heat.
Grease a broiler pan, then line with foil and grease the foil slightly.
In a small bowl mix together Parmesan cheese, butter, mayo, lemon juice and garlic.
Add in all the remaining seasonings and salt if using; mix well and set aside.
Arrange the fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan (you sprinkle salt on fish but it is not necessary).
Broil a few inches from the heat for about 2-3 minutes.
Turn the fish over and broil a couple minutes more.
Remove from oven and cover them with the Parmesan mixture on the top side only.
Return to oven and broil for about 2 minutes more or until the topping is browned and the fish flakes easily (do not overcook the fish!).
