  • 1/4 cup butter softened
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery salt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 pound tilapia fillets about 4 large


  • Preheat your broiler and line a cookie sheet with foil, for easy clean up. Then lightly spray with olive oil.
  • In a small bowl mix together; butter, mayo, parmesan, Old Bay, basil, black pepper, onion powder and celery salt. Squeeze in the juice of half a lemon and set a side.
  • Arrange the tilapia with the dark vein (bottom) side up and broil all fish together for 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove and carefully flip the fish so they are now right side up. Divide the parmesan mixture over each fillet and slide back into the oven for 3-6 more minutes or until the fish is opaque and flakes easily and the topping is golden and bubbly.
