This tilapia recipe was posted on twitter today and I thought it sounded great. I’m posting it so I’ll remember for the next time we’re cooking tilapia.


1/4c parmesan cheese
2 T butter, softened
1 T + 1.5 t mayo
1 T fresh lemon juice
1/8 t dried basil
1/8 t ground black pepper
1/8 t onion powder
1/8 t celery salt
1 pound tilapia fillets


Preheat oven’s broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line a pan with aluminum foil.
In a small bowl, mix together the cheese, butter, mayo, & lemon juice. Season fish with dried basil, pepper, onion powder & celery salt. Mix well & 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 filets over & broil a couple more minutes. Remove the fillets from the oven & cover them with the parmesan cheese mixture on the top side. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned & the fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish.
