So if you're looking for a quick (15 minutes for the fish), healthy meal (200 calories) for the family...this is it.
Broiled Tilapia Parmesan
2 pounds of Tilapia fillets
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 Tbsp mayonnaise
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/8 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp celery salt
1. Preheat your oven's broiler for a couple of minutes, and grease a broiling pan, or line with aluminum foil (I do this for quick clean-up).
2. In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise, and lemon juice. Season with dried basil, pepper, onion powder, and celery salt. Mix well and set aside.
3. Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan. Broil for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the fillets over, and broil for a couple more minutes. Remove the fillets from the oven, and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side. Broil for 2 more minutes, or until the topping is browned, and fish flakes easily with a fork.
I make it with wild rice and either carrots, green beans, or broccoli. You know it's a hit when my picky eaters love it. It's so delicious! And here's proof!
