  • 2 lbs tilapia fillets
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 tablespoons butter room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoning salt I like Old Bay seasoning here
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • black pepper
  • 1 dash hot pepper sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a buttered 13-by-9-inch baking dish or jellyroll pan, lay fillets in a single layer. Do not stack fillets. Brush top with juice.
  3. In a bowl combine cheese, butter, mayonnaise, onions, and seasonings. Mix well with a fork.
  4. Bake fish in preheated oven 10 to 20 minutes or until fish just starts to flake.
  5. Spread with cheese mixture and bake until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
  6. Baking time will depend on the thickness of the fish you use. Watch fish closely so that it does not overcook.

Recipe Notes

Note: This fish can also be made in a broiler. Broil 3 to 4 minutes or until almost done. Add cheese and broil another 2 to 3 minutes or until browned.
