Tangy Parmesan Tilapia

This is one of my favorite fish recipes. I like tilapia because it isn't very expensive, easy to get and it has a mild taste which my family likes. This recipe is from a healthy cooking magazine I get that I love! I use a lot of recipes from the magazine for everyday meals. This one was definitely a keeper - enjoy!

1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 tablespoon reduced-fat butter, softened
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Dash onion powder
4 tilapia fillets (5 ounces each)
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a small bowl, combine the first eight ingredients; set aside. Line a broiler pan with foil and coat the foil with cooking spray. Place fillets in prepared pan; sprinkle with salt. Broil 3-4 in. from the heat for 2-3 minutes on each side. Spread 1 tablespoon cheese mixture over the top of each fillet; broil 1-2 minutes longer or until topping is golden and fish flakes easily with a fork. Yield: 4 servings.


  1. Perfectly timed - I have some tilapia in my freezer I was trying to decide what to do with.

  2. I love fish, and my husband doesn't. I think this recipe is a perfect one to satisfy both of us. Thank you!
