Broiled Parmesan Tilapia

This recipe is one of many I tried and enjoyed from kittencal over at recipezazz. The mayo keeps the fish so moist and juicy. The cook time for this will vary depending on how thick your tilapia fillets are. Make sure you watch this closely, as soon as the fish flakes easily, it is cooked.


1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened
4 tablespoons gluten free mayonnaise
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon celery salt
2 pounds tilapia fillets

Set oven to broiler heat. Grease a broiler pan, then line with foil and grease the foil slightly.
In a small bowl mix together Parmesan cheese, butter, mayo, lemon juice and garlic. Add in all the remaining seasonings and salt if using; mix well and set aside.
Arrange the fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan (you sprinkle salt on fish but it is not necessary).
Broil a few inches from the heat for about 2-3 minutes.
Turn the fish over and broil a couple minutes more. Remove from oven and cover them with the Parmesan mixture on the top side only.
Return to oven and broil for about 2 minutes more or until the topping is browned and the fish flakes easily (do not overcook the fish!).
