From Mama's Restaurant, Minocqua, WI"Made this tonight for the first time. The Tilapia tasted restaurant quailty. I added black pepper to the fish before baking, otherwise I followed the recipe. My wife absolutely loved it and for the very first time I was able to enjoy baked fish. I'm a deep-fried fish fanatic. This recipe is a keeper. Thanks so much for sharing, Pami." - Mikail

Tilapia Parmesan Preparation
Preheat oven to 350F.
In buttered 13-by-9-inch baking dish or jellyroll pan, arrange fillets in single layer. Brush with lemon juice.
Bake fish in preheated oven 10 to 20 minutes or just until fish starts to flake.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine cheese, butter, mayonnaise, onions and seasonings. Mix well with fork.
Spread fillets with cheese mixture and bake until golden brown, about 5 minutes.
Baking time will depend on the thickness of the fish you use.
Watch fish closely so that it does not overcook.

"Spread fillets with cheese mixture and bake until golden brown, about 5 minutes."
Yeah, at this point, I turn the broiler on, and stick the pan back in the oven, on the rack it started on, so it's broiling from like a foot away. Browns but doesn't burn quickly at this distance.
