Broiled Parmesan Tilapia

A friend of mine came across this delicious Broiled Tilapia Recipe last week, and posted it on Facebook. It looked so good, but I decided to re-vamp it and make it less Weight Watchers Points, but with more of the Parmesan cream sauce. Mission accomplished. That was one tasty, light broiled tilapia recipe! I was truly surprised at how good it turned out, and how much of the cream sauce I was able to get in each serving. At just 6 Points for a very nicely sized piece of fish smothered in a delicious Parmesan cheese sauce, it’s a great bargain. I’ll definitely be making this again soon.

Broiled Tilapia Recipe with Parmesan Cream Sauce

Creamy, cheesy, and just 6 Points, this low calorie Broiled Tilapia Recipe with Parmesan Cream Sauce is a real dinner delight. It’s an easy dinner recipe that can be prepared in a pinch, and will be enjoyed by the whole family.


  • 1 pound tilapia fillets (4, 4oz fillets)
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp Brummel & Brown butter
  • 1/2 cup plain, fat free Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 1/2 of a lemon
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper


  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, Greek yogurt, basil, lemon juice, salt, pepper and onion powder. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Arrange fillets in a single layer on the prepared pan, and rub and juice the 1/2 lemon over the fish fillets before you broil them. Broil a few inches from the heat for 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the fillets over and broil for a couple more minutes.
  4. Remove the fillets from the oven and cover them with the Parmesan cheese mixture on the top side. Broil for 3 more minutes or until the topping is browned and fish flakes easily with a fork. Be careful not to over-cook the fish.

    Just curious if you’ve had leftovers of this. If so, what was the reheated taste like? I assume via microwave?

  2. Love this! Thank you for keeping so much cheese sauce. It was a hit in our home.

    can i ask what the 1/2 of lemon is for? it shows where it uses the 2T of lemon juice….is this FROM the lemon? or just use lemon juice….sorry probably sounds silly to ask i just want to make sure before i make it. As of right now i’ll be using 2T PLUS juice from half a lemon.. thank you in advance for your help

    • Wow, thanks for catching this!!! The 2tbsp of lemon juice is what I’m referring to in Step 2. The half of a lemon should be used to rub and juice over the fish fillets before you broil them. I just updated the post to reflect this. Thanks again!

  4. You you please tell me what kind of turkey sausage you used in the WW Chicken Jambalaya.  I cannot find a sausage type product.  Did you by any chance use a kielbasa sausage or is it more like a pork sausage?  This recipe really appeals to me.  Thanks for your help!

  5. 2 pounds tilapia fillets (4, 4oz fillets)”

    Wouldn’t 4 four-ounce fillets be one pound, not two? 1 pound = 16 oz

    This looks REALLY good. I am definitely going to try it!!
