Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Cook Time: 10 Minutes
Ready In: 15 Minutes
1/2 pound tilapia fillets
2 tablespoons low-fat Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon butter, softened
2-1/4 teaspoons low-fat mayonnaise
1-1/2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/8 teaspoon celery salt
Preheat your oven's broiler and grease a broiling pan or line with aluminum foil.
In a small bowl, mix together 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 top them with the Parmesan cheese mixture.
Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned, and fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to overcook the fish.
