I made it last week while also craving green bean casserole. I made the green beans for Thanksgiving, and only took a little, so I could stuff myself with everything else that was on the buffet. Much to my dismay, the dish was empty by the time I put the leftovers away...so depressing. (That sort of rhymed?)
Anyway, this is delicious and I highly suggest making both =)
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Yield: 4 servings (8 tilapia fillets)
- Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper--for sprinkling on tilapia
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
- 2 Tablespoons lemon juice
- 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon celery salt
- 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
- 8 tilapia fillets--I found a package in the frozen seafood section that has 4 individually wrapped tilapia fillets. It's excellent!
- Prepare the sauce by mixing together the parmesan cheese, butter, mayo, and lemon juice. In a small ramekin, combine basil, black pepper, celery salt, and onion powder. Add seasonings to butter mixture.
- Place fillets in a single layer on a foil-lined baking sheet. (Use a baking sheet with a lip, so that the juices won't run off.)
- Place a baking rack a couple inches away from the broiler. Preheat the broiler, and sprinkle fillets lightly with Cajun, salt, and pepper. Place the baking sheet on the top rack in the oven and bake for 2-3 minutes.
- Remove the tilapia from the oven, and flip each piece over. Sprinkle with the same seasonings. Broil for another 2-3 minutes.
- Remove from oven and add cream sauce to the top of each fillet. Broil again, 2-3 minutes, or until the tops are bubbly and golden brown. Enjoy!!
