1) Preheat oven to 400ºF.
2) Pat tilapia dry (if frozen, it should be thawed first) with a paper towel and season with salt and pepper. Lay on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick spray and bake for 10-12 minutes. While fish is baking, mix butter with garlic, thyme and parmesan cheese.
3) Remove fish from oven and gently flip. Spread about 1/2 tablespoon of butter mixture on the fish, and heat the broiler in your oven. Set fish under the broiler for about 2-3 minutes, or until cheese gets golden and bubbly.

A variation on this recipe
"Here, a simple sprinkle of buttery bread crumbs appeals to kids but can also be embellished for adults. We rely on a handful of grated Parmesan cheese for salty sharpness, a pinch of lemon zest for lightness and a garnish of fresh basil for a wonderful aroma and fresh flavor that brings it all together." —
