Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

What a week it has been... the cold weather is back, cars not starting, snow and wind. January seems like it may never come to an end, but then I guess there is just one week left to the month. Then we will have one more month of winter behind us. Come on spring, please hurry.

Dinner time is always a lot of rushing around of late. Mike and I both seem to be working later, so we are always in a hurry to get dinner on the table. That is one of the reasons I love fish, it doesn't take long to prepare and it's quite versatile.

I found a recipe for this Tilapia with some great seasonings and Parmesan cheese and knew that it had to be something I had to. This recipe is quick and delicious.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan (Source: adapted from
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons melted butter
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
4 to 6 tilapia fillets
1. Preheat oven broiler. Grease broiling pan or line with aluminum foil.
2. Mix all ingredients except the tilapia fillets and set aside. Arrange fillets in a single layer on prepared pan.
3. Place fillets under broiler for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip fillets over and broil for 2 to 3 minutes more. Remove fillets from oven and cover with Parmesan mixture on top side. Broil until fish flakes easily with a fork about 2 minutes.


  1. This is totally yum, Dawn.
    Stay warm!

  2. I agree that fish is a great option when short on time. I grew up on the East Coast so I'm used to eating fish frequently. Have to admit this recipe is a new one for me, I'll have to give it a try.

  3. Oooh- I just got some fresh tilapia. This sounds great!

  4. Nice way to prepare tilapia, love the cheesy and crispy layer...yum!
    Thanks for the recipe Dawn, and hope you are having a nice week :D

  5. These remind me of chicken cutlets, but even faster because tilapia cooks so quickly!

  6. Great combination of flavors for this fish.

  8. Fish with parmesan is always a winner.

  9. Fish really is great "fast" food, because it takes so little time to cook. This looks great -- love the idea of Parmesan. Thanks for this.
