Number of Servings: 4


    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


Serve with broccoli and brown rice.


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
