  1. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line a broiling pan with aluminum foil or spray with olive oil cooking spray.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir garlic until fragrant, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Mix Parmesan cheese, garlic, buttery spread, almonds, mayonnaise, bread crumbs, lemon juice, seafood seasoning, basil, black pepper, onion powder, and celery salt together in a bowl.
  4. Arrange tilapia fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan; cover pan with aluminum foil.
  5. Broil in the preheated oven for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip fillets, cover pan with aluminum foil, and broil for 2 to 3 more minutes. Remove aluminum foil and cover fillets with Parmesan cheese mixture. Broil in the oven until fish flakes easily with a fork and topping is browned, about 2 more minutes.

Loved this, my two year old never eats fish and he ate two servings ( his size). Not to mention my husband enjoyed it as well. I served it with mushroom ravioli.

I really liked this recipe a lot. It is very rich tasting. My only minor gripe is that the top of the spread browned before the whole mix became a crust. I would just suggest spreading fairly th...
