Broiled Parmesan Tilapia

Tilapia is our go-to item when we get sick of chicken, and I think this recipe will become a regular. This was the second time making this dish, even though the hubby doesn't remember it! The crust on top of the fish is crunchy, with a nice saltiness from the celery salt, and it really hides the sometimes "fishiness" of the tilapia. I put the fillets in the broiler while still frozen, so they took at least 10 minutes to get flaky.

• 1 lb tilapia fillet(s) (about 4)
• 1/4 cup(s) parmesan cheese, grated
• 2 tbsp butter, with salt, softened
• 2 tbsp mayonnaise, light
• 1 tbsp lemon juice (fresh)
• 1/4 cup(s) breadcrumbs (panko is great too)
• tsp garlic powder
• 1/4 tsp paprika
• tsp basil
• tsp pepper
• tsp onion powder
• tsp celery salt


1. Preheat broiler. Grease broiling pan (or line with foil and spray with cooking spray).

2. Arrange fillets in a single layer on the pan. In a small bowl, mix together all remaining ingredients and set aside.

3. Broil the fillets a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip fish over and broil 2 more minutes.

4. Remove fillets from the oven and spread the cheese mixture on top.

5. Broil 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork.
