Broiled Tilapia Parmesan with Penne Broccoli Alfredo

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan Recipe

(Image from recipe found below)

Tonight for dinner we are having broiled tiliapia parmesan and penne with broccoli and alfredo sauce.

I found this recipe here for a different parmesan tiliapia than I normally make.  This recipe is more of a soft broiled dish than the crusty baked version that I usually make.

This is the recipe so you don’t have to click the link—


  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery salt
  • 2 pounds tilapia fillets


  1. Preheat your oven’s broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season with dried basil, pepper, onion powder and celery salt. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan. Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the fillets over and broil for a couple more minutes. Remove the fillets from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over cook the fish.

The side that I am making is just penne broccoli alfredo.   I tried to find an actual recipe to include in this post, but all of the recipes that I found included chicken.

So… this is what I do.  I just boil a package of penne in salted water until done.  I use the parmesan version alfredo sauce by Ragu, but they also have a classic version.  I just add a bag of frozen broccoli and heat it all until it is hot enough.  Sometimes I add a little extra garlic.

They also sell packets of mix to make alfredo or you can make your own from scratch if you are that ambitious.  I have never made it from scratch, but maybe sometime I will.  I found this recipe, also from, and it doesn’t look all that hard.
