"The family really took to this. I made it exactly per the recipe, but any kind of fish that would hold together when cooked, like shellfish would be great, too. It comes alive with the Parmesan cheese, so don't skimp on this ingredient."

"I was a bit nervous trying this recipe as I haven't had success with many fish dishes in the past. I was very much surprised with how tasty this dish is; felt like I was at Red Lobster! I used frozen tilapia filets that I had on hand instead of the catfish. A "keeper"."
