This dish was really good! I would recommend doubling the parmesan mixture so that you can use it also as a dipping sauce
SOOO good, probably one of the best fish recipes I've tried. For those people who don't like fish this recipe doesn't have much of a "fishy" taste so you should try it. This is better than the "Broiled Tilapia Parmesan" Recipe that is also on allrecipes, I think because of the added seasoning step. I searched for a recipe for Sazon seasoning on google and though it's a little extra work to mix up yourself you can definitely taste the difference (I've tried both with and without the seasoning and it's huge!). I too had difficulty finding Sazon in my grocery stores - so I made my own after searching on google, 1 tsp each of: salt, garlic powder, black pepper, paprika, cumin, corriander.
Like many cooks I substitute for what I have on hand. Having no idea what miami style seasoning is I used a sweet-hot seasoning and italian herbs instead of basil. The result was wonderful and complemented by the brown rice that accompanied it. The next day I sautéed the leftovers of both with onions and carrots in olive oil which was equally delicious. I will use this two-day formula again. Thanks for sharing.
I don't think I've ever eaten tilapia so quickly! This recipe is divine. I even licked the plate when I was done. Thanks for the fantastic recipe!
This was a fantastic recipe. My wife is extremely critical of fish recipes and she just gobbled this up. I didn't have any sazon seasoning, but I had something called 'Spike' seasoning which is a similar all-purpose seasoning that we used instead. Other than that, we followed the recipe exactly. We might use less butter (used actual butter not margarine) next time as I felt it was richer than it needed to be to impart all the flavor. I also used low-fat mayonnaise instead of fat free. The extra calories from the low-fat instead of fat-free mayo & full fat butter probably also contributed to rich taste. Either way, super yummy and will definitely make again!
My husband almost licked MY pate. LOL! Next time I might put a little less parm to bring out the lemon, but over all it was awesome.
I'm a person who never really liked fish, but I wanted to start eating it since it is so healthy for you. I came across this recipe and decided to give it a try. It was very easy and quick to prepare and cook. Online recipes that I've tried before lie about the prep time and take much longer. This one was true to it's word. The tilapia came out great. As I said before, I don't really like fish, but I like this. It is very flavorful, and following the instructions allowed me to prepare it without a fishy taste.
I made this the other night using catfish because that's the only fish my husband will eat. He told me,"you can make that for me anytime. It was fantastic!" That is a great compliment to this recipe. The only thing I added was 1/8 tsp of garlic powder. Thank you so much for the recipe.
My husband and I used our own seasoning blend. Super quick and easy. We plan to make this weekly. DELICIOUS!
This is by far one of the best recipes I have ever had along with being so easy to make! The sauce is light and I always make a little extra to go with the rice or couscous. Wonderful recipe and a keeper at our house.
I made this last night, following the recipe as best I could because I used fresh catfish, as my husband does not like tilapia, and I could not find miami sazon, so I used Tony Chachere's instead. This was great, I doubled the recipe using 10 pieces of fish for three of us and there was not a piece left. I had one piece, and my son and husband devoured the rest. I made salad, a side and a vegetable, and the fish still dissapeared. Will definitely make the a lot.
Too salty by far! The overall flavor also completely overwhelmed the fish.
Delicious. I only changed a few things. No sazon seasoning so I used a combination of paprika, cayenne pepper, garlic salt, ancho chile. I used melted butter instead of blend and dill instead of basil, which was yummy! I also didn't have onion powder so I chopped up some scallions. I liked my additions and would make it again.
This dish was amazing!!! I used Cavendar's seasoning in place of the sazon seasoning and omitted the celery salt. Turned out great. I will be adding this to my dinner rotation!!!
Amazing Idea for a great recipe. I altered it to make it much healthier and It turned out AMAZING! Rather than using butter and mayo I used olive oil and Greek yogurt. I would recommend this to ANYONE and to try something simple like swapping fat for yogurt in your cooking.
Excellent recipe! My husband does not like fish but he came back for seconds and thirds. I did substitute Old Bay for sazon seasoning, and I had to broil the fish for a few more minutes at the end to get the golden brown coating. The fish was moist and very flavorful. A definite keeper! Thank you.
I have to post because this dish is delicious!! I hate fish but am on a low carb diet and heard Tilapia is one of the least fishy tasting fish so I was looking for a stellar recipe....this is it!! Thanks to another reviewer who posted this: I too had difficulty finding Sazon in my grocery stores - so I made my own after searching on google, 1 tsp each of: salt, garlic powder, black pepper, paprika, cumin, corriander I followed the recipe and made the seasoning above. AMAZING!!
Way too salty.
Very GOOD!! My husband loved it too!
I made this last night for dinner and everyone loved it! My husband pronounced it restaurant quality. (I used real butter and light mayo.) Made up a batch of sazon as suggested by a reviewer since I had everything including dried cilantro, and ground it up in a spice mill. Worked great. This recipe will be terrific on any white fish.
It was good. I think I need to add more seasoning to give it a little more flavor. I used a real lemon and that gave it a little more zest. I will do it again. Had corn on the cob and salad with it.
Fabulous! Best fish recipe ever (from my kitchen anyway). I didn't have the Miami-style seasoning so I used Chinese five-spice. The cinnamon in that threw me off a little but my family raved anyway!
I don't know what sazon seasoning is, so I just use a little old bay and some thyme. This is probably my most used recipe on this site.
Yummy! I thought that the strong flavor of the parmesan might be to overpowering for the tilapia but it turned out to be really good. I only seasoned the fish with salt, pepper and lemon juice and added some breadcrumbs to the cheese blend, it gave it a nice crunch.
My husband LOVES this recipe! Don't change a thing! The only thing I did different, is I double the sauce. Used half on the fish while cooking it, and the other half I heat up in the microwave and use over the veggies, rice or whatever I cook with the fish. I don't have Miami seasoning, so I just sprinkled onion, garlic, paprika, and parsley over the fish before cooking per one reviewer. This recipe is true to the prep and cook time. I think it too longer for me to make my sides than this delish fish!
This was WAY too salty for us, and I used celery seed not salt! If you DON'T like fish, you will like this recipe b/c it hides the flavor of the Tilapia. IF I try this again, I will use a FRACTION of the amount of Parmesan. Disappointing.
This recipe is very good. My family has had me make it twice this week, and so easy to make.
I love this recipe! I did not use Tilapia because it seemed really expensive so I used Alaskan Pollock. I made it for supper last night and lunch today.
HOLY TILAPIA! There's nothing fishy about this recipe... it's flawless and delicious. Don't change a thing. I doubled the parm mixture and I could have made more, every milimeter of fish needs to be slathered in its goodness. YUM! Will make this part of my regular rotation.
Really easy to make and really yummy! My husband does not generally like fish, but since having this the first time, he's asked me to make it several more times. A great, healthy choice. I replaced the margarine with olive oil, and omitted the mayo, and it's perfect!
Cooked this tonight after reading the rave reviews. It is quick to prepare, beautiful to look at, moist, and just too salty. If I do it again I'm not using any salt at all.
Our absolute favourite oven fish recipe. This sauce is also DEFINITELY usable as a baked potato topping.
Will make this again for sure, love the sauce. Added chili flakes and my own take on the spices for added heat and was amazing. Will try this again on other meats; a must try.
This was good but seasoning was a bit strong, I did not have Sazon seasoning so tried with a mix of cumin, coriander, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper, as recommended in one of the reviews. Next time I might just use lemon pepper. My girlfriend really loved it though but she is not a fan of fish and I think she liked that the seasoning pretty much obliterated the fish taste, lol.
If I could give the zero stars I would. I didn’t have that weird seasoning that was called for like many others so I used the suggestions as listed in the comments. Absolutely the most disgusting thing I’ve ever made. There is so much salt it’s un edible. Run away. Far away.
I prepared this for my SO in an attempt to divert from eating so much fried fish. It was a winner!! The fish literally melted in your mouth. He now requests this particular preparation on a regular basis. I use a Creole or Blackened Seasoning in lieu of Sazon. For a little herb flavor, I sometimes substitute Italian Seasoning for the basil, which is included in the blend. I have used both the bottled parmesan as well as the fresh grated; I think I prefer them mixed, but the bottled ie Kraft, does the job just fine. I am thinking about trying it to prepare flounder.
YUM!! Used Mozzarella cheese since I didn't have Parmesan. Instead of the seasoning used Garlic Salt, Paprika, and Onion Powder. These were soooo good and soooo easy to make.
A delicious Tilapia recipe. I had no Miami style seasoning so I substituted seasoned salt and it turned out wonderful. Next time however I would make a little extra Parmesan sauce. This recipe gives a already wonderful tasting fish a new spin.
This was good, but not great. Be careful with the lemon a little goes a long way. My Tilapia cooked really quick and I followed the directions exactly. I felt like the mix should have gone on sooner.
Yum! I preseasoned mine with Old Bay because that's what I had on hand and followed the recipe otherwise. Will make again. Easy!
Great recipe! I used a light coating of Old Bay (I live in MD :) in place of the Miami style seasoning which was FANTASTIC! I believe that Seasoned Salt would also be suitable in place of the Sazon. Also, before serving, I sprinkled each filet with a little lemon juice as well. Everyone just loved this dish! I will definitely be making this again. Next time, I may make my version of a spicy remoulade sauce for dipping.
I had to sign up and become a member just so I could rate this fabulous recipe! I followed the recipe except for the saison seasoning. I used cajun seasoning in place of that and it was delicious!!!! I wouldnt change a thing. We wil be eating this time and time again!!!
I do not like fish and we all loved it..
this was easy, quick, tasty - nice change from from usual tilapia oreganata recipe - a keeper
Excellent!I have made this recipe for years and my teenagers love it! I use low fat mayo, I can't bring myself to use the fat free stuff. But, either way the butter adds a lot of flavor. Just make sure when you top fish with mayo topping that it's hot and bubbly before removing from oven. I also double the mayo/parmesan and lop it on.
This was a big hit! I used low-fat mayo and real butter, used dried lemon peel (available in the spice section) since I didn't have fresh lemons on hand, and forgot to add the basil but didn't miss it. I also made the homemade sazon seasoning another viewer recommended since I couldn't find it in the store. I broiled the fish for 2 minutes on each side before adding the crust but had to broil it 7 minutes (the last 2 on high broil) to get the crust to brown a bit, and the fish seemed a bit overcooked. Next time I would put the crust on after broiling on just one side for 2 minutes, and there will definitely be a next time! Very delicious and easy!
Absolutely love this recipe! My husband and kids love it too, they were licking their plates! I didn't have sazon seasoning so I just sprinkled garlic salt, pepper, onion powder, and paprika on the fish and it came out perfect. There is a tremendous amount of flavor. Almost better than how yummy it tastes is the fact that this recipe uses low cost ingredients that I always keep on hand. Great to throw together quickly without worrying about whether I have all the ingredients or not.
We usually use the fiery fish tacos recipe from this site whenever we cook tilapia (very cheap fish). We grill the fish for the tacos. Well, as luck would have it, it was pouring rain whenever it was time to start preparing dinner. Luckily, I found this recipe. I used Old Bay seasoning (sparingly) in place of the Sazon whatever seasoning and low fat olive oil mayo vs the fat free because it was what I keep on hand. My husband and three teenaged sons all liked it. This is a very nice recipe to turn a cheap piece of fish into something eveyrone would eat :)
Way too salty.
Too salty. Need to cut back on that, otherwise very tasty.
This has become a favorite. I've served it for company several times over a bed of small leaf spinach and it continually gets rave reviews. It works fine to make the lemon-cheese paste up a day ahead and store in the frig. until ready to broil the fish. I cover a jelly roll pan with foil and broil the seasoned fish for 2 minutes and turn. Apply the lemon-cheese paste to the second side and slip under the broiler for another 2-3 minutes. Quick and delicious!
Easy to make and so yummy! We aren't big fish eaters but this recipe was enjoyed by all of us, even the kids.
This dish tasted amazing! Since I also did not have Sazon seasoning, I used fresh parsley, fresh onion & minced garlic to season it! This was also my first time cooking fish & I recommend this recipe to anyone who enjoys a great fish dish!
I made this for dinner tonight. We have one in the family that is on a low sodium diet so I only sprinkled a little sazon seasoning on and I didnt have celery salt so didnt use that at all. My husband suggested maybe try a little garlic next time, which I will try, but everyone came back for seconds so it was a hit! Not an easy task for a large family! Thank you for posting.
great recipe! so quick and easy and delicious! didn't change a thing, wonderful just as it was..
This recipe is wonderful!!!! I love it
I loved this as well as my 4 year old and 1 year old. This will be in the regular rotation
Delicious, we loved it!
Really delicious and fast! I didn't have sazon seasoning, so I sprinkled the fillets with cumin and garlic powder (two which I read are in sazon). Other than that. I made it as written and it was great. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!
As most have said, everyone I made this for loved this receipe. I did have to search for the Sazon Completa in 3 different stores but it turned out to be worth it. I finally found it in Publix on the internation isle. Badia is the company that makes it, but I also saw some by Knorr. I had never tried this spice combination before, but I put it in a lot of receipies now.
fantastic! I made was to grill on the grill instead of in the oven. I've made both ways and my family preferred the outdoor grill. Added smoked paprika to the mayo mixture. Also, used fresh basil minced on top just before serving instead of putting dried basil in mayo mixture. We will add this to our rotation!!!
This recipe was delicious, easy to cook and quickly made. I'm just learning how to come out of my comfort zone in the kitchen, and so I was very happy to get this recipe right on the first try! I had to come back and rate this recipe!
OMG! This was delicious!!!
Cheese was little overwhelming and salty. Will cut down next time and bump up other ingredients.
AWESOME!!!! We love tilapia and I'm always looking for new ways to make it. This is SOOO good!! Everyone loved it! Thanks for the recipe MOMS2398!
Very good and very tasty! The first time I made this I followed another reviewers advice and made more of the sauce to put on top and it was just too much. This time I followed it precisely and it was wonderful! Very moist, very tender, and very flaky! Also, extremely easy to prepare which is a plus in my household!
One word, Amazing! I'm cooking more for my good friend so he can give it a try!...... One thing though.. I didn't know what to bake it on so I just went with 400 but for some odd reason it took a while to get the crust brown.. and even then, it wasn't as brown as the picture, but ultimately... WILL be cooking again!
Subbed drizzle of olive oil for the mayo, this was a great & easy recipe.
Delicious and easy! Even my husband, who is not much of a fish eater, loved this! We put it on a roll and had scrumptious fish sandwiches.
FANTASTIC!!!!! Even the family members who don't usually like fish, loved this! Omitted the lemon zest, since others commented on it being too lemony. Couldn't find sazon salt so made the homemade version using salt, garlic powder, pepper, paprika,cumin, creole seasoning, onion powder. These were all seasonings I already had on hand.
This was really tasty and simple to make. This recipe comes together quickly which makes it great for a weeknight meal. I'll be making this one again soon.
Kids and hubby love it.
This recipe is phenomenal! Thanks for passing it on.
I'm NOT a fish eater. Completely grosses me out, yet I know the health & weightloss benefits, so I thought I'd force myself to get used to it. OMG...no need to force myself with this recipe! Just to say it edible to me it a huge compliment but it went beyond that to actually GOOD tasting! Love it!
I have been cooking Talapia for about a year now - I wish I had found this recipe sooner ! Just like the others have said, very flaky and tasty! we will cook this again !
I served this for Sunday dinner to my 19 yo daughter and her boyfriend and she declared it "the best meal you've ever made, Mom!" I served it with steamed broccoli and my own recipe for French Onion rice. I made it exactly as written except I used Garlic Pepper instead of just pepper, and I added some cayenne, in the topping and I didn't have any sazon seasoning so I sprinkled it with Old Bay Garlic Herb seasoning before broiling it. I also doubled the ingredients for the topping because I had ten pieces of fish and I recommend making more anyway because I covered the fish completely with the topping and I think that's what made iit! Great, great recipe that I will be making many, many more times in the future!
So yum!! I don't even like fish. I tried this recipe and I will be making this again!
We loved this recipe, the topping makes a lot and you could cut that in half to save on calories. A quick, easy recipe which made my tilapia skeptical meat loving husband eat fish. A keeper for me! Thank you.
Delicious. Tweaked it a bit but it was fabulous.
It has good flavor, but a little over powering for my taste. Next time I personally would use less sazon and no mayonaise.
everyone in my house really enjoyed this!
SO GOOD! i didn't have the sazon seasoning, so I used Goya Adobo. This tastes like it's from a fancy expensive seafood restaurant, and it was very easy. Thank you so much! I think i'll have to make tilapia like this everytime I make it now!
What a wonderful recipe for Tilapia. That sazon seasoning really makes this dish and can be used on other seafood. Just google sazon or search one of the her reviews for the ingredients. Try it you'll love it.
I just don't think my family likes parmesan cheese that much because we didn't like this recipe at all. It was edible, but I won't make it again. We don't like fish flavor, that's why we use tilapia; however, the parmesan, lemon and seasonings in this dish really emphasized the fish flavor, not hid it.
This was incredible! I did not have sazon so I used Old Bay seasoning. I grilled the fish to start, then put the sauce on and broiled to completion. The sauce seemed just a tiny bit too thick to spread, so I added a bit of the lemon juice. it was very flavorful! Even my picky kids ate it, and I was not inclined to open the tartar sauce. This is definitely a recipe I will make again soon. Thanks so much!!
Next time I will use a little bit more mayo and a little less lemon juice. Delicious!
Very easy to do! Tilapia was tasty and well cooked.
I am eating this now and am definitely enjoying it. It was very simple to make. I didn't have everything the recipe requested, but I don't think that affected the taste any. I didn't have any lemon zest, so just omitted that. I didn't have any fat free mayo, so used regular. I didn't, as many reviewers have stated, have the Sazon seasoning, so I used the recipe so nicely shared by another reviewer: 1 tsp each of: salt, garlic powder, black pepper, paprika, cumin, coriander - this was more than enough for the four fillets. One reviewer said she makes a double batch of the Parmesan topping to save as dipping sauce. I kept back a little of the liquid to try that and find it adds a really nice flavor to the finished fish. The children haven't finished eating yet, but they haven't turned their noses up. Lol. I definitely will be making it again for myself.
Very very good. Quite rich.
Delightful and very tasty! I made a few substitutions because of 2 ingredients I did not have on hand, but it was very tasty & will definitely keep this one as a regular. (Did not have the Miami seasoning, so I used Nature's Recipe with a little Tony Cachere's. Also, used 1/4 c mozz & 1/4 c parmesan.)
This recipe is great every single time I make it!!!!! This is now a staple item for me and my family. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
yummy!!!! my new go to fish recipe!! i added some dried dill and didn't have lemon zest so added lemon pepper instead. i also used adabo seasoning to sprinkle on the fish before because i didn't have their spice. EXCELLENT!
This recipe was easy and quick. I did not have the Sazon seasoning but used another reviewers recipe for it and it was superb. Everyone loved it and it was just as awesome the next day as leftovers. Definitely a Lenten friday dinner :)
Great! Substitute garlic, onion powder, paprika...any of your favorites for the Sazon. Serve over sautéed spinach with fresh Parmesan. Oh so yum.
This is by far the BEST recipe I have ever used for broiled fish. I used Old Bay seasoning instead of Sazon because that's what I had in the pantry. I will definitely be making this again and again.
