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."

"This recipe was excellent! I did not have horseradish and substituted cream of tartar. It turned out so good. My husband loved it! When I took it out of the oven, it was all white. I placed it in the broiler for five minutes and came out perfect. Delicious!!!"
