This is a modification of someone else's version - I have changed the seasonings and used less parmesan and butter/margarine. This is a modification of someone else's version - I have changed the seasonings and used less parmesan and butter/margarine.

    Good recipe. I varied it by using Miracle Whip, garlic powder with parsley, and dried basil since they were what I had. My tilapia was frozen so I baked it first for 10 minutes and broiled for 2 with the topping. It was moist and flavorful! - 2/27/12

    I really love this because it is super easy, and has a lot of flavor. I just use the grated parmesan in the green can, instead of spending a lot on the fresh stuff. I had never cooked fish before making this, and found the recipe on Spark and modified it. I hope you like it!
