Parmesan Tilapia

I’ve made this a couple of times once with frozen this time with fresh. Fresh fish is a must! I’ve also found that cod or red snapper holds up better than tilapia.


2 lbs tilapia (can be cod or red snapper)
2 Tbs fresh squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup grated Parmesan (I used shredded which I had on hand and it worked just as well)
4 Tbs butter, at room temperature
3 Tbs mayonnaise
3 Tbs finely chopped green onions (optional)
1/4 tsp Old Bay seasoning
1/4 tsp dried basil
Black pepper to taste
1 dash hot pepper sauce (optional)


Preheat broiler. Lay fillets flat on nonstick broiler pan. Brush fish with lemon juice. In bowl, combine cheese, butter, mayonnaise, onions, and seasonings. Mix well with a fork.

Broil fish 3-4 minutes or until almost done. Add cheese and broil another 2-3 minutes or until browned.

Serves 4
