Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

I wanted to update you all real fast and let you know that I GOT A JOB!

My interview went very well this morning and I got the job! I start Monday, April 18th!

Its been a rough (almost) year since I was laid off! I have had some really great support from people! And of course my cooking! Don’t worry, I won’t stop cooking, just because I got a job! I always make time for good food and cooking! But now I will have a paycheck so I can make EVEN better food! I am so exciting, I am dancing around out apartment today! YAY!

Normy is not a big fan of Tilapia, I am trying to get him to be a fan, as I like it! So what better way then to cook the Tilapia in butter, mayonnaise and parmesan cheese. Who wouldn’t like it then? Well Normy liked it, he wasn’t happy with the amount of butter though…


1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
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

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 over cook the fish.

  1. My goodness, this looks good. I’m not a big fan of Tilapia either…because I saw a program about them…that I need to get over. But this recipe would be great with any fish. I love, love, love my seafood! And I lve that you post recipes with salmon and other fish. Great job.
