Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

I made this for dinner for the first time and my family enjoyed it.  My 6 year old was not too happy about having to eat fish, but when she tasted it she gave me a thumbs up.  Then she ate half of her little brother's fish and asked me if we could make it tomorrow.  We'll be making this again soon, maybe not tomorrow, but soon. 


Broiled Tilapia Parmesan
recipe from The Sisters' Cafe  and also from my SIL, Maggie

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 T mayonnaise
2 T fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/8 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp celery salt
2 lbs tilapia fillets

Preheat broiler.  Grease broiling pan or line with foil.  
 In a small bowl, mix together Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise, and lemon juice.  Season the cheese mixture with basil, pepper, onion powder, and celery salt.  Mix well and set aside.
Arrange fillets in a single layer on prepared pan.  Broil a few inches form the heat for 2-3 minutes.  Flip fillets over and broil for a couple more minutes.  
Remove from oven and cover with Parmesan cheese mixture.  Broil for 2 more minutes or until topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork.  
Do not overcook the fish.  Serve immediately.
