  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice fresh
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery seed
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 2 pounds tilapia fillets (8 fillets)


  • Turn on your broiler. No really, turn it on right now, because making the sauce will literally take you 5 minutes. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and coat with nonstick spray.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with dried basil, pepper, onion powder and celery seed. Mix in the bread crumbs 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 2 more minutes. Remove the fillets from the oven and spread the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is nice and brown and fish flakes easily with a fork. Don't overdo it. Nobody likes dry fish!
