Broiled Parmesan Tilapia

Fish does not rank up there on either Nick's or Warren's favorite foods ... unless of course we are talking about frozen fish sticks.... Ugh! If I put it in front of them Warren will eat it and Nick will try it. I have a 50% track record of actually getting him to finish his portion. Warren ate this one but it was not a hit with Nick. The topping does become very creamy hence the not s pretty pic.
Broiled Parmesan Tilapia
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp butter, softened
1 1/2 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 Tbsp lemon juice
1/8 tsp dried basil
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
Dash onion powder
Dash celery salt
1 lb tilapia fillets
Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with foil and coat it with cooking spray.
In a small bowl, mix the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with dried basil, pepper, onion powder and celery salt. Mix well and set aside.
Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan. Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the fillets over and broil for a couple more minutes. Remove the fillets from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flake easily with a fork.
