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

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

This recipe is AH-MAZING! My family loved it and I've served it up for friends too! My husband even liked it which is saying a lot. I usually serve it with garlic parmesan cous cous instead of rice. Read More

Recipe flavor delicious. Two issues: preparation of topping is a little time-consuming; and time for cooking wasn't accurate. I first attempted to broil it with the aluminum foil over the fish (didn't make sense but recipe called for this) and after 3 minutes the fish was still raw. I ended up broiling the fish without any foil for the specified times and it worked fine. Had to extend the broiling time for the last portion with the topping. Overall a good recipe I'll use again.

Pretty dang tasty. I toasted the almonds just to give them a stronger flavor and then processed everything in the food processor. That made the preparations pretty simple. 5 min under a "normal" temp broil, flipped and topped them for 5 more min. Came out great. Read More

My husband a true meat and potatoes man does not care too much for fish. But he loved this dish so much he ate not only his usual portion but then devoured the rest (I had made extra for lunch the next day). So for me to find a fish recipe he liked that much is short of amazing! Read More

Love this tasted like a hybrid of pan fried and broiled. I'm lazy and used minced garlic and put the whole mixture in the microwave. It was perfect. I think next time I'll put on the half the mixture (minus bed crumbs) on the fish when I broil it to get all those flavors there. Read More

I really liked this recipe a lot. It is very rich tasting. My only minor gripe is that the top of the spread browned before the whole mix became a crust. I would just suggest spreading fairly thin to get that crusty texture. Read More

Ooh my gosh! Fabulous! I substituted a few things due to what I had on hand;mayonnaise for butter and almond flour for the slivered almonds omitted the bread crumbs added a little poultry seasoning and olive oil. The Old Bay Seasoning is delicious. The whole family oohed and awed with my seven year old telling me to open my own restaurant! Thanks! Read More
