MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 27, 2013

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.

MY REVIEW

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.

My 9-year-old grandson, who is a picky eater, ate four pieces of this fish, and asked me to be sure to make it again!
