Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil, or as needed

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • ¼ cup buttery spread (such as Smart Balance®), softened

  • ¼ cup slivered almonds, crushed

  • 3 tablespoons reduced-fat olive oil mayonnaise

  • 2 tablespoons bread crumbs

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon seafood seasoning (such as Old Bay®)

  • ¼ teaspoon dried basil

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • teaspoon onion powder

  • teaspoon celery salt

  • 1 pound tilapia fillets

Directions

  1. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line a broiling pan with aluminum foil or spray with olive oil cooking spray.

  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir garlic until fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes.

  3. Mix Parmesan cheese, garlic, buttery spread, almonds, mayonnaise, bread crumbs, lemon juice, seafood seasoning, basil, black pepper, onion powder, and celery salt together in a bowl.

  4. Arrange tilapia fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan; cover pan with aluminum foil.

  5. Broil in the preheated oven for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip fillets, cover pan with aluminum foil, and broil for 2 to 3 more minutes. Remove aluminum foil and cover fillets with Parmesan cheese mixture. Broil in the oven until fish flakes easily with a fork and topping is browned, about 2 more minutes.
