Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

(From Martha Clem)

Another delicious treat brought to me by my neighbor, Martha. This was indeed the BEST fish I have ever eaten! This fish was moist and flaky; perfectly cooked!!


½ cup Parmesan cheese

½ cup Panko bread crumbs

¼ cup butter, softened

4 Tbsp. mayonnaise

2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

¼ tsp. dried basil

¼ tsp. ground black pepper

1/8 tsp. onion powder

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1/8 tsp. celery salt

1 Lb. (about 4) tilapia fillets

Old Bay seasoning (or your favorite seafood seasoning salt)

paprika, to taste

parsley, to taste

In a medium-sized bowl combine Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, butter, and mayonnaise.

Add lemon juice, basil, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and celery salt to mixture. Set aside.

Cover a cookie sheet with tin foil and spray with cooking spray.

Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan and generously sprinkle Old Bay seasoning over the top only.

Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the fillets over, sprinkle on the Old Bay seasoning again, then broil for a couple more minutes.

Remove the fillets from the oven and pat about 3 Tbsp of the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side of each fillet.

Sprinkle with paprika and parsley.

Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork.
