Last week when I pulled a 1.5lb bag of frozen tilapia fillets out of the freezer, I set about searching for a new way to cook it just for fun. The recipe I found got two thumbs up from all the children and Daniel absolutely raved about it. It quickly got added to my recipe box for reuse in the future.
I highly recommend trying it.
Broiled Tilapia Parmesan
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
2 pounds tilapia fillets
1. Preheat your oven’s broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.
2. In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with dried basil, pepper, and onion powder. Mix well and set aside.
3. 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 over cook the fish.
