  1. Preheat the oven's broiler and set the oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source. Line a broiler pan with aluminum foil. Spray the broiler pan's rack with olive oil cooking spray.
  2. Sprinkle tilapia with sazon seasoning and arrange on the prepared broiler rack.
  3. Cook the fillets under the preheated broiler until fish is barely opaque, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  4. Mix the Parmesan cheese, butter-margarine blend, fat-free mayonnaise, lemon juice, lemon zest, basil, black pepper, onion powder, and celery salt together in a bowl.
  5. Spread the Parmesan cheese blend over the fish fillets, return to oven, and continue cooking until the topping is golden brown and the fish flakes easily, 3 to 5 more minutes.

This dish was really good! I would recommend doubling the parmesan mixture so that you can use it also as a dipping sauce

Like many cooks I substitute for what I have on hand. Having no idea what miami style seasoning is I used a sweet-hot seasoning and italian herbs instead of basil. The result was wonderful and c...

SOOO good, probably one of the best fish recipes I've tried. For those people who don't like fish this recipe doesn't have much of a "fishy" taste so you should try it. This is better than the "...

I don't think I've ever eaten tilapia so quickly! This recipe is divine. I even licked the plate when I was done. Thanks for the fantastic recipe!

This was a fantastic recipe. My wife is extremely critical of fish recipes and she just gobbled this up. I didn't have any sazon seasoning, but I had something called 'Spike' seasoning which is ...

I'm a person who never really liked fish, but I wanted to start eating it since it is so healthy for you. I came across this recipe and decided to give it a try. It was very easy and quick to pr...

My husband almost licked MY pate. LOL! Next time I might put a little less parm to bring out the lemon, but over all it was awesome.

I made this the other night using catfish because that's the only fish my husband will eat. He told me,"you can make that for me anytime. It was fantastic!" That is a great compliment to this...
