Generously grease a broiling pan or line it with aluminum foil.
First make your Parmesan cheese marinade. Grate your Parmesan cheese. In a small bowl, mix it together with the softened butter, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Season the mixture with dried basil, freshly ground pepper, onion powder and celery salt. Mix everything well to blend all the tastes and set aside while you prepare your fish.
Take your greased or lined baking pan and arrange the fish fillets in a single layer on it. Place the fish in the oven and broil just a few inches from the heat for about 2 to 3 minutes. Take the baking pan out of the oven, flip the fillets over, put them back into the oven and broil for another couple of minutes on the other side. Remove the fillets from the oven and spoon over the Parmesan cheese mixture, covering the fish fillets evenly. Return the baking pan into the oven and broil the fillets for 2 more minutes or until the topping has browned and the fillets flake easily when pricked with a fork. The key to success is to be careful not to over-cook and dry out the fish.
