Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon and 1-1/2 teaspoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

  • 1/8 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1 pound tilapia fillets

Tips

Serve with broccoli and brown rice.

Directions

Preheat your oven’s broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.

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.

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 overcook the fish.

Makes 4 servings.
