I recently decided that we need to eat more fish. I made this decision for various reasons, but mainly because it’s delicious and, for the most part, good for you. It should also be noted that since I made this wise decision I have cooked fish all of one time. Yeah, I’m really good at following through. At least I have this one recipe to share with you,with hopefully more to come.


Ingredients

2 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese
1 Tablespoon butter, softened
1 teaspoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
a pinch of: dried basil, ground black pepper, salt, celery salt, and garlic powder (feel free to add your favorite spices too!)
2 tilapia fillets

Directions
Start by lining a small pan with foil and preheating your oven’s broiler. Then, in a small bowl, combine all ingredients (except the fish).

Place the fish on your foil-lined pan and broil for about 3 minutes.

Remove the fish and flip them over and broil again for about 2-3 minutes. Next, cover them with the cheese mixture on the top side.

Broil for another 2 minutes, making sure the cheese mixture is browned and the fish flakes easily.

Serve over mixed greens drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and topped with more Parmesan cheese.

Final note – if you’re feeding one with a large appetite, I’d suggest making 2 filets per person as they are relatively small in size and leftovers are never a bad thing.
