Broiled Parmesan Tilapia

Adapted from this recipe on
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (packaged works much better than fresh grated for this)
  • 1/4 cup unseasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened (NOT melted)
  • 3 Tbsp light miracle whip
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Pampered Chef All-Purpose Dill seasoning
  • 2 pounds tilapia fillets

  1. Preheat your oven's broiler. Spray broiling pan with cooking spray or line pan with aluminum foil.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese,bread crumbs, butter, miracle whip, and lemon juice. Season with garlic powder and Dill Seasoning. Mix well and set aside.Do not refrigerate - keep at room temperature!
  3. Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan. Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the fillets over and broil for a couple more minutes. Remove the fillets from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish.
Excellent - flaky, moist, tender fish! The whole family loves it! Usually we each eat 2 fillets. Great with baked brown rice and steamed broccoli.
