Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat your oven's broiler. Spray a broiling pan or aluminum foil with non stick cooking spray.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
