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.

    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

    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

    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

    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
