So much flavor…so few ingredients! A quick and easy crumb coating makes this yummy tilapia recipe ideal for busy weeknights. Try the breading on cod for a change of pace. —Brandi Castillo, Santa Maria, California

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 24, 2015

"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"!"

"Made this for dinner last night & I must say it was FANTASTIC! After reading the previous reviews & for health reasons, made these minor changes, used egg beaters to dip the fish in first & used seasoned Panko crumbs & Romano cheese. Omitted oregano. Served it with potatoes, pan fried mushrooms. This is a keeper in my recipe box!

Brandi, thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe with us all!"

"I followed the advice of some of the other reviewers and dipped the fish in egg before dipping in crumb mixture. Turned out great! Next time I'll squeeze lemon over each fillet. Very yummy!"

"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."
