My husband is not a big fish eater, but this recipe had him looking for seconds. What makes it a joy for me? It is so quick and easy that it qualifies as a busy weeknight selection.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Line a broiler pan with aluminum foil. Spray the broiler pan's rack with olive oil cooking spray.
  2. Sprinkle tilapia with sazon seasoning and arrange on the prepared broiler rack.
  3. Cook the fillets under the preheated broiler until fish is barely opaque, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  4. Mix the Parmesan cheese, butter-margarine blend, fat-free mayonnaise, lemon juice, lemon zest, basil, black pepper, onion powder, and celery salt together in a bowl.
  5. Spread the Parmesan cheese blend over the fish fillets, return to oven, and continue cooking until the topping is golden brown and the fish flakes easily, 3 to 5 more minutes.

Amazing tilapia recipe. All three of my kids loved this. I didn't have Sazon seasoning on hand so I used a mix of onion, garlic, paprika and parsley. Love the fact it is low carb!!! So good that my husband wants to serve to company three days from now!!!!

This dish was really good! I would recommend doubling the parmesan mixture so that you can use it also as a dipping sauce

Like many cooks I substitute for what I have on hand. Having no idea what miami style seasoning is I used a sweet-hot seasoning and italian herbs instead of basil. The result was wonderful and complemented by the brown rice that accompanied it. The next day I sautéed the leftovers of both with onions and carrots in olive oil which was equally delicious. I will use this two-day formula again. Thanks for sharing.
