Ingredients

  • ½

    cup grated parmesan cheese

  • ¼

    cup butter, softened

  • 4

    tablespoons mayonnaise

  • 2

    tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • ¼

    teaspoon garlic powder (or to taste)

  • ¼

    teaspoon dried basil

  • ½

    teaspoon black pepper

  • teaspoon onion powder

  • teaspoon celery salt

  • salt (I use seasoned salt)

  • 2

    lbs tilapia fillets

Directions

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!).
