Parmesan Broiled Basa Fillets

DH and I really liked this dish! The older girls thought it was OK, they said they liked their fish in parchment better. Pixie girl, who's 15 months now :-0, thought it was de-lish also. So we will be having this again. Check out the optional almond meal topping also!

Parmesan Broiled Fish
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons butter, softened
2 tablespoon mayonnaise
2 fresh lemon juice- I used lime
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1 tablespoon finely chopped flat leaf parsley 
black pepper
onion powder
garlic powder
cayenne pepper (optional)
celery salt
1 pound Basa fillets (or tilapia, etc)

Mix all the ingredients except the fish and almond meal. Turn on the broiler to high. My fillets were a bit on the thick side so I broiled them a little first until almost done, use your judgment. Slather the mixture on top and broil until golden and fish flakes easily.  (see note*)Serve with lime or lemon wedges, I topped ours with tomato slices. Flat leaf parsley on top is so good.

*Optional Topping
(optional for protein and crunch)
Mix together
1/3 cup almond meal

 If you want to use the optional topping sprinkle it on before your fish is done, just to let the almond meal brown and get crunchy.
