Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

I just discovered Tilapia last year, and now I crave it!
I do not like fish that tastes fishy.
Tilapia has a very mild and good taste to it.
I mainly grill Tilapia with a Lemon Pepper seasoning (I put it in foil with the seasoning on top, then place it on the outside grill).
I found this recipe over on 'The Sisters' cafe" and was very pleased with how it turned out. It was so GOOD, I will be making this recipe again and again!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan
adapted from 'The Sisters' Cafe"

1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter, melted
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 pan or line with foil (I like to line mine with foil it makes for a very quick cleanup). 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.
