Step 1

Set oven to broiler heat. Grease a broiler pan, then line with foil and grease the foil slightly.

Step 2

In a small bowl mix together Parmesan cheese, butter, mayo, lemon juice and garlic. Add in all the remaining seasonings and salt if using; mix well and set aside.

Step 3

Arrange the fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan (you sprinkle salt on fish but it is not necessary).

Step 4

Broil a few inches from the heat for about 2-3 minutes. Turn the fish over and broil a couple minutes more. Remove from oven and cover them with the Parmesan mixture on the top side only. Return to oven and broil for about 2 minutes more or until the topping is browned and the fish flakes easily (do not overcook the fish!).

Tender, moist, and full of flavor. Easy to prepare and quick to make. This would work with any white fish. Always a favorite!!

This is one of the tastiest and easiest fish recipes I've ever run across, and it's diabetic-friendly besides! The combination of flavours gives it just the right tang without being overwhelming, and the parmesan mix browns very nicely under the broiler. I've even baked it (due to a non-working broiler) at 400F for about ten minutes, 5 more after adding the parmesan mix, and it gives the sauce a nice crunchy edge that we really liked. I usually use tilapia, but I've also made it with cod and and haddock and been equally happy.
