Tilapia Parmesan

If you have never tried or liked fish tilapia is a great fish to start with. It has a very non-fishy taste. It is also very reasonable cost wise. I bought a bag of 5 frozen pieces for under $4.

My family (minus my picky son) loves this. I usually cook at 400 for about 10-15 minutes and then broil the top for 5 minutes.

Tilapia Parmesan

SERVES 4
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened
4 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (or to taste)
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon celery salt
salt (I use seasoned salt)
2 lbs tilapia fillets

  1. Set oven to broiler heat.
  2. Grease a broiler pan, then line with foil and grease the foil slightly.
  3. In a small bowl mix together Parmesan cheese, butter, mayo, lemon juice and garlic.
  4. Add in all the remaining seasonings and salt if using; mix well and set aside.
  5. Arrange the fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan
  6. Top the fish with mixture and broil a few inches from the heat for about 6 minutes (maybe more depending on how thick the pieces are) or until fish is firm, white and flaky and the top is brown

Tried this last night and it is SO GOOD!! It really turns boring fish into a fancy dinner--very rich.

My mom has made tilapia for me several times since I'm diabetic as of last month. It is very tasty, and I am picky when it comes to fish! I absolutely love it; tastes just like chicken!
I can ask her if I can make the parmesan version with her. :D
Danke!
