This is my favorite tilapia recipe ever! I want to eat it every day. I make it a little healthier by using lite mayo and less butter.

  • Mix Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise, and lemon juice together in a small bowl. Season with dried basil, pepper, onion powder, and celery salt. Mix well and set aside. Arrange fillets in a single layer on prepared pan.

  • Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip fillets over and broil for 2 or 3 minutes more. Remove fillets from oven and cover with Parmesan mixture on top side. Broil until fish flakes easily with a fork, about 2 minutes.

This recipe is a healthier version of Broiled Tilapia Parmesan.

This recipe was only ok for me. I wanted to try the healthier version of my favorite tilapia recipe but was disappointed with the outcome. The "sauce" was much more soupy compared to the original recipe so it didn't cover the fillets nicely resulting in a less than desirable final result. I'll definitely stick to the full fat version in the future. Read More

Wow! This was delish - definitely restaurant quality! I made this with the Olive Oil Miracle Whip and skipped half the butter. This was super easy to make and will be on our menu rotation for quite a while. I served the Tilapia over brown rice and sauteed zucchini and yellow squash with garlic olive oil and parmesan cheese. YUMMY! Read More

Delicious flavor. The only thing I did different was bake it at 350 for about 15-20 minutes. Read More

I did add panko crumbs for texture and they are low fat so it doesn't take away from the healthy part. I used garlic powder and paprika in place of the celery salt....Delish! Read More

WOW!! So Delicious! If you are trying to get your kids to eat fish then this is the recipe you have to try. I usually cook Salmon on our fish nights just because of the benefits from all The Omega acids... However after trying to branch out for some other fish I bought Tilapia filets and have tried around 4-5 different recipes. This one by far is the best and easy too. The only thing I did before the initial broiling step was I did squeeze fresh lemon juice over the filets after a little salt and pepper. i kept the topping ingredients the same including fresh lemon juice. I don't know if it is just the right amount of ingredients blended together or what. To be honest I didn't even measure the topping ingredients. I just estimated cause I'm old and have cooked since I was twelve. Read More

We've been trying to eat healthier meals and include fish more often in our diet. I made this tonight. It was fabulous! I used olive oil in place of the butter and used Old Bay in place of the onion salt/celery salt. I also used fresh basil. The family loved it! Will definitely add it to my recipe box as a favorite.
