These are fabulous and easy enough for a quick weeknight supper. Serve with Rice Pilaf or Risotto and a nice glass of Chardonnay!
- 1⁄2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 1⁄4 cup butter, softened
- 6 tablespoons mayonnaise
- 2 -3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder (or to taste)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon dried basil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1⁄8 teaspoon onion powder
- 1⁄8 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
- 2 lbs tilapia fillets
- Preheat your oven's broiler. Spray a broiling pan or aluminum foil with non stick cooking spray.
- In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with dried basil, pepper, onion powder and celery salt. Mix well and set aside.
- Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan. Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the fillets over, and broil for a couple more minutes. Remove the fillets from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side, then Sprinkle with Old Bay Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish.
- Wine Tip.
I made this in around 15 minutes start to finish. It was very easy. I did leave out the mayo and adjust the seasoning blend a touch, but it was still delicious. I never even turned the fish. Just slathered on the mix and broiled for 6 or 7 minutes. It left a thin but very crispy crust on the fish. In that 6 minutes I made some veggies and dinner was done!
Had Tilapia in the freezer and did quick internet search for a better recipie...LOVED this one! Substituted Vegenaise for Mayo, chopped onions for onion powder, and Lawry's Orig. Seasoned Salt for the Old Bay Seasoning! Served with Near East Wild Mushroom & Herb Couscous, & Frozen Peas. YUMMMMMMY!!!
Great flavor, the only thing I maybe would change is to use a touch less butter and Old Bay. Otherwise, excellent and will use this recipe often!
