Servings 4
Author Divas Can Cook


  • 4 tilapia fillets thawed
  • Old Bay with Blackened Seasoning
  • Seasoning salt I used Lawry's
  • 4 Tablespoons Mayonnaise I used Duke's
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese shredded (I used a parmesan-romano-asiago mixture)
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1-2 tablespoons butter softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon basil
  • 1/2 tablespoon green onion flakes can use regular onion flakes


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Place fillets on a baking sheet lined with foil paper and sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Season top of fillets generously with old bay and seasoning salt.
  • Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile mix the remaining ingredients in a medium-size bowl.
  • When fish comes out of the oven switch the oven to a LOW BROIL.
  • Top the fish with a layer of the breadcrumb mixture, pressing it gently into the fish to keep it in place. (I always have a bit of the mixture left over)
  • Broil for 3-5 minutes or until the topping is golden.
  • Garnish with parsley.
  • Serve and enjoy!


Watch the broil carefully. Some ovens broil run really hot!
Garnish with fresh parsley to add a pop of color.
Like bacon? Throw some crunchy, bacon on top! Yum!
