Lemon Parmesan Tilapia
2 ½ pounds tilapia fillets
2-4 teaspoons butter
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
1 cup mayonnaise
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
Top tilapia fillets with butter and 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Broil about 4 inches from the source of heat for 5 to 6 minutes or until fish is opaque and flakes easily when tested.
Combine mayonnaise, remaining lemon juice and Parmesan cheese.
Top each portion of fish with 1 to 2 tablespoons of the sauce and broil 2 to 3 minutes until the sauce puffs and turns golden brown. Place fillets on serving plate and garnish with lemon slices and fresh parsley.
