Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

This sauce would also be great on chicken or fish.  This dish takes about 7 minutes to prepare.  I love that.  I wish I had put a piece of basil on top of the tilapia for the picture, but I didn't and it is already gone.  From - Phoebe 5/12/2011

Printable Recipe:

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1/8 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise
zest of one lemon
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon celery salt
2 tilapia fillets
1. Preheat your oven's broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.
2. In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise, lemon zest and juice. Add 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 a few inches from the heat for 2-3 minutes. Flip the fillets over and broil for 2 more minutes. Remove the pan and cover the fillets with the Parmesan cheese mixture only on top. Broil for 2 more minutes. Remove to a serving plate and serve immediately.
