My husband is not a big fish eater, but this recipe had him looking for seconds. What makes it a joy for me? It is so quick and easy that it qualifies as a busy weeknight selection.

  • Sprinkle tilapia with sazon seasoning and arrange on the prepared broiler rack.

  • Cook the fillets under the preheated broiler until fish is barely opaque, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

  • Mix the Parmesan cheese, butter-margarine blend, fat-free mayonnaise, lemon juice, lemon zest, basil, black pepper, onion powder, and celery salt together in a bowl.

  • Spread the Parmesan cheese blend over the fish fillets, return to oven, and continue cooking until the topping is golden brown and the fish flakes easily, 3 to 5 more minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute low-salt all-purpose seasoning blend for sazon completa.

Amazing tilapia recipe. All three of my kids loved this. I didn't have Sazon seasoning on hand so I used a mix of onion garlic paprika and parsley. Love the fact it is low carb!!! So good that my husband wants to serve to company three days from now!!!! Read More

Too salty by far! The overall flavor also completely overwhelmed the fish. Read More

This dish was really good! I would recommend doubling the parmesan mixture so that you can use it also as a dipping sauce Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More
