  • 6 tilapia fillets
  • cup grated parmesan
  • 2 Tbsp mayonnaise
  • 2 Tbsp softened butter
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • ¼ tsp paprika
  • tsp garlic powder
  • Salt, to taste


  • Adjust oven rack to top and turn on the broiler.
  • In a small bowl, combine all ingredients except tilapia.
  • Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and lightly spray with cooking spray. Place the tilapia on top. Broil for 3-4 minutes, depending on thickness, and flip.
  • Evenly divide the parmesan mixture and spread out on top of tilapia. Return to oven and bake for an additional 3-4 minutes. That’s it!


You can cut off thinner sections of your tilapia and save them for another time. They're perfect for tacos or salads!
