Introduction

I’ve started with a recipe I found on Spark recipes, exchanged some ingredients, and added a little of the bread crumb topping for texture.
This has a nice tang to it, due to the lemon and the miracle whip light, and makes fish much more appealing for “non-fish eaters” like me. I liked the base reciep over others because the ONE tbsp of butter will not run like the two tbsp recipes do and will brown better. the addition of the bread crumbs helps with the texture.

Ingredients

    Tilapia, 4 (4 oz filets)
    Cheese, Parmesan or Parmesan Romano (grated), 1/4 cup
    Land O Lakes Light Spreadable Butter with canola oil, 1 Tbsp
    Miracle Whip Light, 1tbsp
    Lemon juice, 1 tbsp
    Pepper, black, 1/8 tsp (can sub cayenne if you like some heat)
    Kosher Salt, 1/8 tsp
    Onion powder, 1/8 tsp
    Seasoned bread crumbs (we like the Italian kind, but you can use Panko, Plain, or Cajun, as your taste dictates).


Tips

To aid in not overcooking the fish, use less time in the broiler on the first step on the second side of the fish. You are better off coating it and cooking a little longer with the coating to finish the fish, than you are trying to get it cooked before the coating and then overcooking the fish trying to get the topping browned


Directions

1.Preheat your oven's broiler. Spray a broiling pan or pan lined with aluminum foil with non-stick cooking spray.
2.In a bowl, mix the Parmesan, light butter, miracle whip light and lemon juice. Season with pepper, onion powder and 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.
4. Remove the fillets from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side. Then sprinkle a light dusting of seasoned bread crumbs on top
5. 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.
