Reviews for Breaded Baked Tilapia
"So - so. little flavor."
"Definitely dredge the fish in egg. Panko crumbs leave it very crunchy. I use 1/2 panko and 1/2 seasoned bread crumbs, which gives it a good flavor. Good recipe to keep."
"I'v been fishing for a long time around 50 yrs. so just a tip on how to make your fish tast better turn the fillets over flat side up and you will see a dark line running from end to end this is the blood line! it makes the fish taste strong so remove it by slicing it away then turn it back over and make sure its gone there might be a little left on the bottom edge i'v shown friends this and every one has thanked me as they liked the taste of there fish better""
"We really liked this, but what improved it immensely was dipping the fish in eggs before coating in the bread crumb mixture. I was amazed that the breadcrumbs fully adhered to the fish since I've had issues with that in the past with the recipes! I think I would add some seafood seasoning to it as well to give it a little more flavor, but this is a great basic recipe that can be adapted however you choose!"
"I followed the advice of another reviewer and used Panko crumbs instead of bread crumbs for more crunch--glad I did! I did everything else exactly as written. However, I wish I had also used the egg dip first to hold the crumbs on better. I will also do that next time. And this was such an easy yet delightful treatment of fish that there WILL be many "next times"!"
