  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 5 (about 3 tablespoons) round, buttery crackers, crushed
  • 4 6-ounce tilapia fillets
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • lemon wedges optional


  1. Place a rack 4 inches from heat source and preheat broiler to high. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil; mist with cooking spray.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together Parmesan, butter, mayonnaise, lemon juice, basil, ¼ tsp. pepper, garlic powder and crushed crackers until thoroughly mixed. Place topping mix in freezer while preparing fish.
  3. Place fillets in a single layer on baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Broil until fish is opaque, 7 to 8 minutes. Remove from oven and spread cracker mixture evenly over filets. Broil until topping is golden brown and edges of fillets are crispy, about 2 minutes. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.
