Ingredients

    1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
    2 tablespoons butter, softened
    1 tablespoon and 1-1/2 teaspoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    1/8 teaspoon dried basil
    1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1/8 teaspoon onion powder
    1/8 teaspoon celery seed
    1 pound tilapia fillets

Tips

Serve with broccoli and brown rice.


Directions

Preheat your oven's broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.

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. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to overcook the fish.

Makes 4 servings.

    Yummy! I used Dover Sole, added a little Old Bay Seasoning, replaced the celery salt with garlic salt, and baked it at 400 for around 15 minutes. We all loved it. - 4/2/08

    This was so yummy and flavorful. I would recommend when adding the spices to "smoosh" btwn fingers first to really get the max flavor punch. My husband raved over it and asked if I made the topping or if it was something I bought at the store! Served it with brown rice and a mixed frozen veggie. - 3/1/09

    This is one of my favorite recipes. Quick, easy and delicious. I don't use celery seed or celery salt, just a little thyme instead of the basil, salt and pepper. I often use garlic powder in place of onion powder because I always have it on hand. I recommend this to anyone who needs a quick meal. - 7/30/09

    Lots of flavour. Served with a simple mushroom risotto for a healthy hearty meal. Cooking times are really finikcy, my fish was a little overcooked. Will cut cooking time next time I make. - 9/3/08

    I've made this tons of times, and we love it! Fish can be thawed out within minutes by soaking in hot water, so this requires no extra planning. I always keep these ingredients on hand as my back-up plan. YUM! - 4/21/09

    I thought this recipe was great! I'm not a huge fan of mayonnaise so I decided not to use that and instead I mixed all of the ingredients with Italian bread crumbs and coated the fish with the mixture before broiling and then used lemon juice after it was cooked. It was delicious! - 8/20/09

    I used chopped fresh basil instead of dried, & garlic powder instead of onion powder.Obviously there are tons of small ways to vary this recipe, but the bottom line is that it's SCRUMPTIOUS! - 8/23/09

    This recipe was very delicious. I don't like to cook fish in the house, so I grilled it in tin foil and then broiled the top. I used fat free mayo, and next time, I'd use a little less butter. Overall, it was really good. - 2/2/08

    Great easy recipe. I'm always looking for ways to serve fish. I used dijon mustard in place of the butter and the mayo and tweaked the seasonings a bit and it turned out great. - 8/10/09

    Delicious-I used miracle whipped light instead of real mayo which made it a little too sweet. Next time I'll follow the recipe to the t. It was awesome. - 3/29/09

    Yeah I got this recipe from another website...allrecipe? Not too sure, but I suggest changing a few things. I.e. celery seed instead of celery salt, don't add the lemon juice or 1/2 it, double the pepper and add 1/4c. of bread crumbs. - 1/30/09

    I hate to cook but I loved this recipe. It was super easy to make and done so fast my broccoli wasn't quite ready! My son, who doesn't care for fish, ate seconds. The fish was eaten as fast it was cooked. Easy clean up too... one bowl and toss out the foil! - 12/29/09

    I tried it for dinner tonight and it tasted so yummy. Used less butter and I used Lt. Mayo which cut some of the calories. My husband wanted seconds, and there were none to have. This is a diffenit wonderful recipe. - 4/10/09

    This was delicious. I used Pickeral instead of Tilapia. I liked it because it contained ingredients that I had in the pantry. No special ingredients. - 3/20/09
