Broiled Tilapia


Recipe Description
It's broiled and it has a Parmesan cheese coating. Need I say more?​
Preparation Steps:
I admit that I did not measure much of anything, so this is all an estimate, based on what flavours I like. You can easily change the seasonings to ones you like with excellent results.​
Level of Difficulty:
Easy​
Time Needed:
1 hour (with 30 min resting time)​
Ingredients:
4 fresh tilapia fillets
1 c. Half and Half or buttermilk
1 c. flour
3/4 c. shredded Parmesan cheese (divided into 1/4 c and 1/2 c.)
salt to taste
pepper to taste
lemon pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste
dried basil to taste
onion powder to taste
celery salt to taste
1/4 c. butter, melted
3 T. mayo
2 T. lemon juice​
Serves:
4 normal servings or 2 big portions​
Directions:
Place Half and Half in a shallow dish (1).

Mix 1 c. flour, 1/4 c. cheese, salt, and lemon pepper in another shallow dish (2).

Dredge fillet in Dish 1, then in Dish 2. Make sure both sides are well-coated, then place fillet on rack to rest. Complete with each fillet, placing each on rack. Let rest 20-30 minutes.

Preheat oven to broil.

Mix 1/4 c. butter, 1/2 c. Parmesan cheese, mayo, lemon juice, basil, pepper, onion powder, and celery salt in a small bowl.

Grease a 9x13" baking pan and place all four fillets side by side. Cook 2-3" under heating element for 2 minutes. Turn fish and place back in oven to broil for another 2 minutes.

Place a small heaping spoonful of butter/cheese mix on top of each fillet. Spread around a bit, if you want full coverage. Place back under broiler for 3 minutes.

Check for doneness. Fillet should be flaky when poked with a fork. Do not overcook!

Remove and serve - prepare your tastebuds for nirvana.​

I'm making more tonight!! It turns out that it freezes really well after cooked, so I can just nuke the frozen fillet for about 2 minutes and have a ready-to-eat entree!!
