Broiled Haddock Parmesan

by Melissa on January 28, 2008

I have wanted to try this recipe for broiled tilapia parmesan from for a while, however,  Nate does not like tilapia, so it kept getting vetoed. But, we finally came to a compromise and made it with haddock. This is probably the easiest seafood dish that I have ever made and it is very good!


Broiled Tilapia (Haddock) Parmesan

  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise (I use light mayo)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (Only used 1 tablespoon, and it was still very lemony)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon celery salt (I didn’t have any so I used seasoned salt)
  • 2 pounds tilapia fillets (I used haddock)

Preheat your oven’s broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line a pan with aluminum foil and spray with cooking spray. In a small bowl, mix together Parmesan cheese, butter, mayo and lemon juice. Season with spices. Mix well and set aside.

Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan. I sprinkled the fillets with some Old Bay seasoning. Broil on high, a few inches from the heat for 2-3 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.

Can you tell me what the difference is between haddock and tilapia in flavor and appearance?

I’ve ordered fried haddock at several different restaurants lately, and what I got did not look or taste like haddock. It was a brighter white when cooked, denser, chewier, and not as flaky as haddock.

The restaurants all insisted it was haddock, but they should have known from my strong Boston accent that I know haddock when I see and taste it.

We don’t eat a lot of tilapia, simply because we like haddock more. To me, tilapia has a “fishier” flavor and is thinner than haddock. Perhaps they were feeding you cod. :) Thanks for visiting my blog!
