You'll love this fish recipe! I have also made this with other meaty fish fillets too, works well with basa fillets also!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set oven to broiler heat.
  2. Grease a broiler pan, then line with foil and grease the foil slightly.
  3. In a small bowl mix together Parmesan cheese, butter, mayo, lemon juice and garlic.
  4. Add in all the remaining seasonings and salt if using; mix well and set aside.

  7. Turn the fish over and broil a couple minutes more.
  8. Remove from oven and cover them with the Parmesan mixture on the top side only.
  9. 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!).

This is the most delicious fish that I've ever eaten (and I've eaten many a fish)- better than in the finest restaurants. I omitted the celery salt because I didn't have any and baked instead of broiled it. I brush lemon juice on top and immediately covered the tilapia with Parmesan mixture and baked it , uncovered, at 350F degrees for 10 minutes. Then, increased heat to 425F degrees for 8 minutes to brown topping. Baking the fish with the Parmesan mixture on top the entire time made the fish more moist than adding it later- not to mention it was easier! I made enough for leftovers and warmed up the leftovers with a little water added to a small pan covered with foil in the toaster oven for 20 minutes at 375F. It was just as wonderful as the first day that I made it. Divine! Thank you, Kittencal.

This was awesome and inspired me to change it up a bit to have little less calories and fat.
I used 3 tbsp olive oil and 3 tbsp of light mayo instead. It was really wonderful and is now going to be a recipe in our regular rotation.
