Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

I decided to re-post this recipe, since it is really good and I didn't have a photo for it. Also, I made a few minor changes that I think ended up being better than the original version. Sometimes, it's the little things that make a huge flavor difference!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan
Adapted From: allrecipes.com

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic 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 garlic 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. Spoon some of the sauce from the pan over top of the fish right before serving.

The Result:
Delicious! I increased the quantities and actually changed one of the spices to suit what I had on hand. This was soooooo yummy! I think I will keep this version, and hopefully, remember to make it more often. We all really loved it!
