Broiled Parmesan Fish

I used to make Broiled Tilapia Parmesan, from Allreicpes.com, quite often, and then I stopped using tilapia in favor of other fish, usually only sticking to wild salmon.  There are a few reasons I didn't want to use tilapia anymore, but I won't get into that now- you can google tilapia to find out; mainly because it's a farmed fish and farmed fish aren't good for us for a few reasons.  I think the fish I used for this is wild Sole, but I can't remember.  I had some leftover in a bag, but then someone left our freezer open overnight, so we had to toss a lot of food, including the rest of whatever this fish was.  Anyway.... my long-winded point in the above is that you can use any white fish you want, even tilapia!!  This recipe is good; just try it already!  
Broiled Parmesan Fish
adapted from Allrecipes

1/3 cup Parmesan cheese
2-3 Tablespoons 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
4-6 white fish fillets

1.  Preheat your oven's broiler. Grease a broiling pan or line pan with aluminum foil.  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.

2.  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.
