Tilapia - Formage
- 1 tbsp butter
- 3 1/2 ounces onion, chopped (about 1 small-medium)
- 4 ounces Monterey jack cheese, shredded
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- Dash hot sauce
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp garlic powder
- 1/8 tsp pepper
- 1/8 tsp onion powder
- Red pepper flakes, to taste
- 8 tilapia fillets (about 2 1/2 ounces each)
- 4 tbsp cold butter, cut into 16 pieces
Sauté the onion in 1 tablespoon butter in a small skillet until soft. Transfer to a medium bowl and let cool slightly. Add the cheese, mayonnaise, hot sauce and the seasonings; mix well.
Place the fish on a foil-lined rimmed sheet pan.
Top each piece with two pieces of the cold butter.
Bake at 350º about 10 minutes or until almost done. Divide the cheese mixture evenly among the pieces of fish; spread to cover the tops.
Bake another 10-15 minutes until the cheese has melted and browned slightly. If you want the topping to brown a little more, put the fish under the broiler for a minute or two, watching it closely.
