Broil for 4 to 5 minutes or until almost done. I used my toaster oven set on broil.

Then spread the cheese mixture on the fillets and broil another 3 to 4 minutes or until browned. Watch it closely so it doesn’t burn.

Ingredients

  • 2 tilapia fillets
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon butter, room temperature
  • 2 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 Tablespoon dried chopped chives
  • 1/8 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning, or season salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper

  3. Broil 4 to 5 minutes or until almost done.

Notes

  • You can also bake this dish. Bake fish in an oven preheated to 425 F (220 C) 10 to 20 minutes or until fish just starts to flake. Spread with cheese mixture and bake until golden brown, about 5 minutes. I highly recommend broiling for the last 3 - 5 minutes for browning the cheese. Watch it closely so it doesn't burn. Baking time will depend on the size and thickness of the fish you use.

As a note, when I initially baked it, I baked it at 425 degrees for 10 minutes, then turned up the heat for broiler and broiled it for 3 minutes. Dry fish and burnt spread

I made this and it turned out great. I had it over a period of a few days and made some changes. First off my Parmesan spread didn't come out as moist as your picture shows so I added a bit of water, like 7 grams worth. It helped a little but still not enough. It was still a bit dry and clumpy so I added 2 more tablespoons of goat milk yogurt and that helped to make it more spreadable. I didn't want to add more mayo as I wanted to keep the calories down. As it is, the Parmesan calories are pretty hefty.The first night I made it, I baked it for 10 minutes and then placed it under the broiler for 3 to 4 minutes. It burned the spread and dried out the fish. So the next time I baked it at 450 for 5 minutes, spread the mixture and baked for an additional 5 more minutes. Turned out great. Tilapia is not a very dense fish so it doesn't need to cook that long and I like my fish medium rare, not flaky like most. My pieces were small so for larger thicker fillets, more time might be necessary. Overall this is a keeper. Thanx Zona

Thanks. I don't have an outside grill so I'll just bake it with the fish.

Hi, did you bake or broil the asparagus along with the tilapia and if so what kind of seasoning did you use. It looks delicious and I would like to make it with this recipe.

Hi kazy, for the asparagus we coated it in canola oil, sprinkled on some salt and pepper then just grilled it outside on our gas grill. We use a metal grill basket that has holes in it to stir fry the broccoli over the open flame for about 10 minutes. It has the best flavor being flame grilled and you get the charred crispy bits but you could also pan fry it on the stove for the same amount of time, or pre-heat an oven to 425 F and bake 12-15 minutes.
