Directions

  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.

This recipe is AH-MAZING! My family loved it and I've served it up for friends too! My husband even liked it which is saying a lot. I usually serve it with garlic parmesan cous cous instead of rice.

Love this, tasted like a hybrid of pan fried and broiled. I'm lazy and used minced garlic and put the whole mixture in the microwave. It was perfect. I think next time I'll put on the half the mixture (minus bed crumbs) on the fish when I broil it to get all those flavors there.

Recipe flavor delicious. Two issues: preparation of topping is a little time-consuming; and, time for cooking wasn't accurate. I first attempted to broil it with the aluminum foil over the fish (didn't make sense but recipe called for this) and after 3 minutes the fish was still raw. I ended up broiling the fish without any foil, for the specified times, and it worked fine. Had to extend the broiling time for the last portion with the topping. Overall a good recipe I'll use again.
