Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Amy Scott
Tilapia is a mild fish, and this is by far my favorite preparation of it.  Best of all, it is a very easily & quickly made dinner.
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon dried basil (I used a full teaspoon of fresh)
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon onion salt
1/8 teaspoon celery salt
2 pounds tilapia filets
Preheat broiler.  Grease broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.
In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan, butter, mayonnaise, and lemon juice.  Add the basil, black pepper, onion & celery salts.  Mix well and set aside.
Arrange filets in a single layer on the prepared pan.  Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes.  Flip the fish over and broil for a few more minutes.  Remove the fillets from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan mixture on the top side.  Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and the fish flakes easily with a fork.  Be careful not to overcook the fish.
