Parmesean Tilapia

I was looking for a new recipe to throw into our supper rotation.  I decide to give this one a try and it was a unanimous "yes" - the kids ate it so faster than we could put it on their plate!  :)


Broiled Parmesan Tilapia

1/2 Cup Parmesan
1/4 Cup Butter, softened
3 Tbsp Mayonnaise
2 Tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
1/4 Tsp Dried Basil
1/4 Tsp Ground Black Pepper
1/8 Tsp Onion Powder
1/8 Tsp Celery Salt
2 lbs Tilapia Fillets

Preheat oven/broiler.  Grease pan or line with foil.  In a small bowl, mix together cheese, butter, mayonnaise, and lemon juice.  Season the cheese mixture with basil, pepper, onion powder, and celery salt - mix well and set aside.  Arrange fillets in a single layer on pan - broil a few inches from the heat for 2-3 minutes.  Flip fillets and cook for a few more minutes.  Remove from oven, cover in cheese mixture and return to broiler for 2-3 minutes or until topping is browned.  Fish will flake easily with a fork - be careful not to over bake.  Serve immediately.
