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 allrecipes.com)
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.
