MY REVIEW

"I had my recipe for this printed in the magazine a few years ago.

Replace the soft bread crumbs with 1/2 cup seasoned dry bread crumbs.
Dip fillets in egg beater then in crumb mixture.
Bake as directed."

"Made this for dinner tonight. Something different for us! I made it with the Classic Creamed Spinach. A simple, quick dinner with rice pilaf on the side... Even my 10 yr old who has declared she doesn't like fish ate it! Even a "thumbs up" from the teenager! The only downfall... it was a bit on the pricey side! But worth it!"

"I just made this. I had two thawed tilapia filets and wanted a quick easy recipe. I am GF so I used Gluten Free Bread Crumbs and italian seasoning from one of those home party companies (not sure I can say the brand here), it's like italian seasoning with garlic and onion in it. And I also used the parmesan. I dipped the filets in egg white 1st, then breaded and pressed the breading on, then I spritzed with an olive oil spritzer and baked at 425 for 15 minutes. Came out perfect, crispy and browned."

"Absolutely fantastic! Execellent flavor. My sweetie has already requested I make it again. As for the comments about the crust, I has no issues. I rinses the fish and then sprinkling the crust mixture... perfect."

"Well this was OK but with reservations. I didn't have tilapia but used swai , similar to catfish. Per a few reviews I dipped the fish in beaten egg to hold the breading. Unfortunately even after 15 minutes no crust formed. Next time I plan to pan fry to get a nice crust. Tasty, yes. I'll use basil instead of oregano."
