Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Do you like my new background???? It's fancy, isn't it???? I was getting bored with the look of my old background, but I did not want to make a huge, drastic change. I still wanted it to look like my blog...just a little better. Anyway, I settled on a new background and kept the same template. I think it works nicely...kinda girly, but not too girly. If you can't tell, I am ridiculously pleased with myself.

Okay...on to dinner. I have some tilapia fillets to use, so I decided to do a new, but simple, twist on a a basic broiled fish. I found this recipe on and the reviews are really good. All that have tried it say that it is delicious, easy, and fast. My kind of dish, for sure!!! I think I will serve this with a baked potato and some green beans. I also found a new and easy green bean dish, so I think I will try that too. Both recipes look really yummy!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons fresh lemon
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. 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, onion powder and celery salt. 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.
