More chicken (AKA fish), please!

In our house we do not eat much fish.  When I Googled how much fish we should be consuming in a week we fell terribly short.  Most web sites shared that we should be eating at least two servings of fish a week.  Our household is lucky to eat two fish meals in a month.  I guess I need to find more recipes like the one I am going to share with you today. I love this recipe because it takes less time to prepare it than it does to eat it (now that's what I'm talking about)!  The first time we tried this recipe my six year old was asking for more "chicken".  We did correct him....eventually about the variety of meat he was eating but why spoil it right away when he was eating it so well!  

Broiled Parmesan Tilapia
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 (we like to buy ours from Costco, they have great thick Tilapia Loins)

1.    Preheat your oven's broiler on high. 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 overcook the fish.

It’s a 15 minute meal!  Only seven minutes of cooking, the rest is prep work.  We pair it with broccoli, applesauce, and dinner rolls, yum.  It doesn't taste fishy at all. What are some quick meals that are a crowd pleaser in your house?
