Parmesan-Crusted Fish

Recipe From: Favorite Family Recipes Blog
I didn't have tilapia, but something called Bala Swai (?) must have been on sale.
1-2 lbs tilapia fillets
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs (I didn't use this)
1/4 cup butter (softened)
3 tbsp low-fat mayonnaise
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp fresh basil (chopped)
1/4 tsp ground black pepper
1/8 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp celery salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
dash paprika

Preheat your oven's broiler. Line pan with aluminum foil. In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, Panko bread crumbs, butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Add basil, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, red pepper flakes and celery salt to taste. Mix well and set aside. 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 pat about 3 Tbsp of the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side of each fillet. Sprinkle with paprika and parsley. Broil for 2 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork.
