Tilapia is my favourite fish.  It has fanastic flavour without being too fishy– because we all know seafood tastes best when it doesn’t taste like seafood, right? It’s also a very quick and easy recipe, but tastes like you put a whole lot of work into it.

Broiled Parmesan Tilapia

  • 1/4 c Parmesan cheese
  • 2 T butter, softened
  • 2 T mayonnaise
  • 1 T lemon juice
  • 1/8 t dried basil
  • 1/8 t ground black pepper
  • 1/4 t onion powder
  • 2 6oz tilapia fillets

Place your oven rack in the highest position, and preheat to a broil. Grease a broiling pan.
Stir together the cheese, butter, mayonnaise, and lemon juice.  Add basil, pepper, and onion powder.
Place fillets in a single layer on the broiling pan.  Broil for 2 minutes.  Flip and broil for another 2 minutes.  Spoon mixture onto the fish and broil for another two minutes, or until fish flakes with a fork and topping is slightly browned. Do not overcook!
