Broiled Parmesan Tilapia

This is a very flavourful dish using a mild tasting fish that is easy and done in minutes. The fish is broiled with a creamy cheese coating for an impressive look as well as flavour.

1/2 cup fresh Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 pounds tilapia fillets

Preheat your oven’s broiler. Grease some aluminum foil and line your broiling pan with it. Grease the foil with non-stick cooking spray.

In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with dried basil, pepper, garlic powder and garlic salt. Mix well (it will be thick) and set aside.

Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan. Broil a few inches from the heat for 2-3 minutes. Flip the fillets over and broil for 2 more minutes. Remove the fillets from the oven and cover the top of them with the Parmesan cheese mixture. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and the fish flakes easily with a fork. Keep an eye on the fish so that you don't overcook it.
