  • • 2 lb. tilapia fillets (orange roughy, cod or red snapper can be substituted)

  • • 2 Tbs. lemon juice

  • • ½ C. grated Parmesan cheese

  • • ¼ tsp. seasoned salt

  • • ¼ teaspoon dried basil

  • • Black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In buttered 13 by 9 inch baking dish, lay fillets in single layer. Do not stack fillets. Brush top with juice. In bowl, combine cheese, butter, mayonnaise, onions and seasonings. Mix well with fork. Bake fish in preheated oven 10 to 20 minutes or until fish just starts to flake. Spread with cheese mixture and bake until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Baking time will depend on the thickness of the fish you use. Watch fish closely so that it does not overcook. Makes 4 servings. Note This fish can also be made in a broiler. Broil 3 to 4 minutes or until almost done. Add cheese and broil another 2 to 3 minutes or until browned.
