Tilapia Parmesan--even if you're not a fish lover, it's a must-try recipe

Not a fish lover? Please don't let the name "tilapia" scare you. If you've never tried it, tilapia is a very mild, white fish that takes on other flavors well. In this case, a parmesan sauce. It's fast and easy and cooks under the broiler in 16-18 minutes, and that is using frozen tilapia fillets. What could be easier?

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan
adapted from Our Family Treat

2 pounds of tilapia fillets, frozen
1/2 c. grated parmesan cheese
1/4 c. softened butter
3 T. mayonnaise
2 T. lemon juice
1/4 t. dried basil (heaping)
1/8 t. garlic salt
1/8 t. onion powder
1/4 t. black pepper

Preheat the broiler to low. Place the tilapia fillets on a large baking sheet. Broil the fillets for 6-7 minutes. Remove from the broiler and flip the tilapia over. Broil again 6-7 minutes. Meanwhile, mix remaining ingredients well and let sit while fish broils. After the second broiling, remove fish from the oven and cover with the parmesan sauce. Broil again 3-4 minutes, or until dark golden brown and bubbly. Fish should flake easily with a fork. Serve.
