Reviews for Broiled Parmesan Tilapia
"My husband and I thought this was pretty tasty. We enjoyed the flavor of the topping, but for some reason I thought it would be almost a tad crispy. I had to take it out of the oven early, and lower it from the broiler because parts of the fish were getting done a lot quicker than other parts, and I didn't want it to over-cook. That was probably just because it wasn't a uniform thickness. For seafood seasoning I used Old Bay. I think it could have used a tad more of that. The lemon was a little forward, but it wasn't overwhelming. I think with a little extra Old Bay, it'll balance out. Decent recipe, I'd make this again."
"I can not believe the one single 2 star review came because someone felt this recipe was too time consuming. Really? 5 minutes of prep and 10 minutes under the broiler requires too much effort from you? Maybe you should stick to microwave TV dinners. I look forward to trying this healthy recipe myself! Thank you!"
"Delicious and easy to make."
"While it was simple to put together, I thought it was a bit bland. I had used frozen filets instead of fresh, and they were a bit thin. Next time, I won't use a traditional broiler pan so the seasoning does not run off. Worth another try!"
"Wooow!!! So tasty! But to be safe I have put half of lemon."
"Simple and tastes amazing."
"This was fast, easy and delicious!"
"Too much lime for my taste."
"My family loved it! Super easy and it made a great impression."
"OMG!! I loved this recipe I have made it a few times already. Really does not have that "healthy" taste to it but it is. I also used cajan seasoning in place of the seafood seasoning. Great both ways."
"So good and easy!! I didnt' have seafood seasoning, so I used Cajun seasoning....Sooo Sooo yumm!!"
"I have made this recipe several times. My husband and son love it. It is easy and tasty!"
"I didn't use Tilapia. I had another white fish on hand and I used this recipe on it and it was delicious!!!!"
"I am NOT a fish person and this was incredible!"
"Delicious plus nice and easy recipe."
"I forgot the seafood seasoning but it was still excellent. The only thing I will do next time is make more."
"I don't usually like any type of fish but decided to try this for my family and I really liked it! Added a side of Asparagus Risotto and a salad and I felt satisfied but not guilty!"
"So so good! I just finished eating and I'm already planning to make it again next week! :)"
"I baked it instead of putting it in the broiler since I always burn stuff in the broiler and it turned out great!"
"By far the best tilapia! If u let it broil for an extra minute it gets a perfect crunch on the top."
"Great flaVor and so easy"
"My family's idea of seafood is fishsticks or chicken at Long John Silvers but we loved this dish! Even my very picky daughter only ate the fish on her plate."
"I made this recipe last night for my family of 5. Only of of us really likes Tilapia, but I have to say all of us enjoyed this recipe."
