Parmesan-Broiled Tilapia

I love that simple Parmesan cheese brings such richness to an otherwise mild-tasting fish. It's one dish where leftovers are never a problem! —Tracy Locken, Gillette, Wyoming

    So, so easy and fast to make. I usually have frozen tilapia on hand, and everything else is stuff you'd have in your fridge! My daughter (who "doesn't like fish") devours this.

    This is one of those recipes I just keep returning to again and again. So easy and so delicious! I made it for my in-laws one night when they were visiting, and now they have it twice a week!

    Pretty good. Could have used a little more seasoning but overall a keeper. Thanks for sharing!

    I made this fantastic recipe last night, I will definitely make this again to serve to company!I only made one filet so I quartered the recipe substituting celery seed for celery salt as that was what I had. Easy to make and looks and tastes like restaurant quality!

    I just seen this recipe on the email I received today. It sounded good, so I through it together and stuck it in the boiler. My Tilapia was frozen, so I had to boil it longer (around 8 to 10 minutes), but it turned out ssoooo good, I loved it. This has got to be my best Tilapia recipe now. My husband doesn't like Tilapia period, but I can't wait for him to try this.
