Dijon, Parmesan and a hint of horseradish give this toasty fish from Scott Schmidtke of Chicago, Illinois lots of flavor. The preparation is so easy, it takes just 5 to 7 minutes to get 4 servings ready for the oven.

"This was REALLY good. Making fish is so easy, and this recipe was a great addition to my box. The horseradish added a little zing to it, but it wasn't overpowering at all. I think the lemon juice was also a nice addition. We cooked only 1 filet, but it was huge so I cut the topping only in half. It was a good amount. I put ours in for 11 minutes (my oven runs hot) and that was perfect. We will make this again!"

"Great, quick dinner. The Dijon mixture adds great flavor to the Tilapi. I used Panko and the topping added a wonderful crunch."

"Delicious! I was out of Dijon mustard so I used spicy brown mustard. I will definitely be making this again."
