This Tilapia Parmesan for two recipe is so easy and quick to prepare. I am not usually big on fish, but I absolutely love the flavor and ease of this Tilapia.
It is a mild fish and the sauce on top is cheesy, golden brown and savory. This dish can be baked or broiled.

In a small bowl combine the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise, chives and seasonings and mix it well.
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.
Serve with your favorite side dish, and enjoy!

- 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.
