  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature

Place a rack 4 inches from heat source and preheat broiler to high. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil; mist with cooking spray.

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.

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.
