Meal Deal Monday- Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Okay if you're new to my blog I make a recipe for a family of 4 that is less than $5. This recipe is one of my favorites! The main reason is because it taste so good! But the other is that I LOVE fish but my husband doesn't. Well, guess what? He loves this recipe too!
The total to make this for a family of 4 is only $4.68!!!


1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, $0.40- Great Value is only $1.58 for 1 cup of Parmesan cheese.

2 tablespoons of butter, $0.20-Blue Bonnet is the cheapest at Wal-mart for butter

1 tablespoon of mayonnaise, $.10

1 lb of tilapia, $3.98- Wal-mart has the frozen tilapia for only $3.98 for a lb(there is about 6 tilapias in the bag)

1/8 teaspoon of basil, black pepper, onion powder, celery salt


1.Preheat your oven's broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.
2.In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise . 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 over cook the fish.
