"This is one of my favorite ways to prepare a mild white fish to give it more flavor. It's especially good for frozen filets you may have on hand. I would give it five stars except that I have made changes of my own from the recipe as written. The biggest change I made was to use crushed butter cracker crumbs, such as Club crackers, instead of the bread crumbs, plus I use only a sprinkling of cheese (after first trying it as written, because I felt the cheese was overpowering the fish). I use Tilapia, and the butter cracker crumbs give it an excellent flavor and a nice crunch. I have found, as others mentioned, that 1-1/4 cups of crumbs is much more than needed; I use only enough for a thin layer to top the filets. Otherwise, I follow the recipe as written, and my husband and I both love it. I am planning on trying this recipe on other types of mild flavored fish, and also trying it with Parmesan cheese."

"Excellent! I used low fat cheddar, panko bread crumbs, and I can't believe it's not butter. I also used cod."

"I did not enjoy this at all. There were WAY too many crumbs, could have been cut in 1/2 easily. Did not like the cheese, agree with previous reviewer that parmesan would be better. Very bland."

"Really good and easy to make. I had garlic and herb bread crumbs on hand but found that their flavor was a little overpowering. Will make again but with a different flavor of bread crumbs."
