Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

I was walking home from work and I passed by the Whole Foods. I was lured in my the amazing fresh smell haha. As I walked around the store I picked up some tilapia because I swear this store can make anything look appetizing.
I am not a big tilapia person so I was trying to figure out what to do with it. I found a recipe on All Recipes and adjusted it a little bit using the comments and what ingredients I had.

  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese (I just used canned grated kind)
  • 1 tsp. mustard
  • 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice 
  • 1/4 tsp. dried basil
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. celery salt
  • 1/8 tsp. paprika
  • 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/8 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 fillets (recipe makes enough for 3)

  1. Pre-heat your oven to the broil function or 450F if you don't have it.
  2. Line pan with foil and place fillets in pan in a single layer. Place the pan within a few inches of the top. Broil for 3 minutes on each side.
  3. Combine butter, cheese, and spices.
  4. Remove pan from oven and cover fillets with butter/cheese mixture.
  5. Broil for 5 minutes or until top is browned.
  6. ENJOY.
Because I did. This is definitely going on my weekly dinner list.
