Tilapia has never been my favorite fish but I like it this way very much--parmesan cheese, butter and mayo makes everything better--and it is very quick and easy. I cooked it on the grill the second time and it was nice cooked there but the oven was good also. I thought 2 T. was too much lemon juice. One was perfect for my taste. I am thinking this might be good on Salmon or other fish. http://thepioneerwoman.com/tasty-kitchen/recipes/main-courses/broiled-tilapia-parmesan/
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened (don’t melt)
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon celery salt
2 pounds tilapia fillets
1. Brush a little olive oil lightly on each side of the fish and sprinkle with a little salt, pepper and garlic powder.
2. Preheat your oven's broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.
3. 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.
4. Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan. Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes or on the barbecue grill. 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 topside. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish.
