Broiled Parmesan Garlic crusted Tilapia
Broiled Tilapia Parmesan
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoonsfresh lemon juice
(found these at Trader Joes!)
2 Cubes of basil
2 Cubes of Diced Garlic
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 pounds tilapia fillets
makes 8 servings
Heat broiler on high . Directions..mix all ingredients, except fish, in a bowl..
mixing well..pat fish filets dry with paper towel..
let set for a few minutes…prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper..spray with Pam. Dip fish filets one at a time into mixture..making sure to coat both sides.
lay on parchemnt paper..continue with remainder of the fish filets. Place under broiler being careful to watch so they do not burn. This cooks very quickly. Cook 2-3 minutes and then flip the fish over to the other side..broil another 2-3 minutes..remove from oven and cover with foil..
let set for 4-5 minutes..and then serve.. if they are not done enough to our liking.. you can microwave each filet on a plate for 60-90 seconds..
Mine was done just right. But if you have a thick filet like salmon..you may need longer cooking time..
