Parmesan Tilapia

¼ cup Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp. butter, softened
1 tbsp. low-fat mayonnaise
1 tbsp. lemon juice
¼ tsp. dried basil
1/8 tsp. onion salt
ground black pepper, to taste
1 lb. tilapia fillets

Directions:Preheat your oven’s broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.
In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with dried basil, pepper, and onion salt. Mix well and set aside.
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 overcook the fish.

**Baking directions: Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes.
