Parmesan-Crusted Tilapia

More fish! We love fish in our house. Now are we not only obsessed with tuna sandwiches, but this little sucker of a recipe too! Amelia loved it and kind of freaked out about wanting more. It was cute, and worth it. This is a great recipe.

Parmesan-Crusted Tilapia
1/2 c. Parmesan cheese
1/2 c. Panko bread crumbs
1/4 c. butter, softened
4 Tbsp. mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
1/8 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. celery salt
1 Lb. (about 4) tilapia fillets
Old Bay seasoning (or your favorite seafood seasoning salt)
paprika, to taste
parsley, to taste

In a medium-sized bowl combine Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, butter, and mayonnaise.
Add lemon juice, basil, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder and celery salt to mixture. Set aside.
Cover a cookie sheet with tin foil and spray with cooking spray.
Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan and generously sprinkle Old Bay seasoning over the top only.
Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the fillets over, sprinkle on the Old Bay seasoning again, then broil for a couple more minutes.
Remove the fillets from the oven and pat about 3 Tbsp of the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side of each fillet.
Sprinkle with paprika and parsley.
Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork.
