Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

I was in a pinch for dinner the other night with the same old question, "what am I going to make tonight?"  After some surfing through some recipe sites, I found an interesting sounding idea on Allrecipes. Of course I did change a few ingredients in the original recipe to suit my needs.  Everyone in my home loves having fish. This recipe got raves from my 2 year old, 3 year old, 13 year old, and my husband! I was told it is definately a keeper, so I figured I'd share it with you all as well! Best thing about this recipe is that it is so very quick and easy!

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup butter, softened
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon garlc powder
1/4 teaspoon celery seeds
2 pounds tilapia fillets
Preheat your oven's broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.  In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with dried basil, pepper, garlic powder and celery seeds. Mix well and set aside.
Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan. Broil a few inches from the heat for 6 minutes. Flip the fillets over and broil for 6 minutes. Remove the fillets from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side. Broil for 3 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish.
