Today I am sharing a recipe for fish especially for my Catholic friends who eat fish on Fridays during lent! I love fish, I could eat it every week, luckily Pa Lloyd usually has pretty good luck fishing so I am ready for fishing season to open and needless to say so is he! Of course he can’t supply all my need for fish, I have to get some at the grocery store on occasion. The recipe today calls for Tilapia. If you use a thicker fish you would have to increase the cooking time!
Broiled Tilapia Parmesan:
4- 8 oz. portions of Tilapia fish
1/2 cup parmesan grated cheese
1/4 cup butter, melted
3 Tablespoons of mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
Old Bay seasoning ( optional )
1/4 tsp. dried basil, 1/4 tsp. black pepper, 1/4 tsp. onion salt and 1/4 tsp. of celery salt
Preheat broiler, grease boiler pan or line with tin foil. In small bowl combine cheese, butter, mayo, lemon juice, basil, onion powder, celery salt and pepper. Arrange fish in single layer on pan, sprinkle with Old Bay seasoning, broil for 3 minutes a few inches away from heat, turn fish, sprinkle that side with Old Bay seasoning and broil another 2-3 minutes. Top fish with cheese/mayo mixture and broil another 2 minutes until topping is browned and fish flakes easily. You can sprinkle with parsley to serve.
Have a great week and think SPRING!!

I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
