Preheat the oven to broiler mode and lightly grease a baking dish with vegetable oil. Arrange the clean tilapia fillets in to the prepared baking dish and broil it on high for 3 minutes.
Remove the baking dish, flip the fillets and broil the fish again for another 3 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large bowl add the parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese, softened butter, mayonnaise, fresh lemon juice, dried oregano, black pepper powder, onion powder, salt, and mix everything well until nicely combined.
Now, evenly cover the fillets in to the cheese mixture and again transfer the baking dish in to the oven to broil for another 8 to 10 minutes or until the fish is evenly brown at the top.
Serve the hot tilapia fillets and enjoy!
You may replace the cheddar with equal quantities of parmesan cheese to get a crispier coating over the fish. If desired you may also marinate the raw tilapia fillets in parmesan mixture for about 30 minutes and then broil the fish for 5 to 10 minutes alternatively on both sides. Maintain the oven temperature to high and you might need to keep a watch on the tilapia fillets in the final minutes of baking.
