Reviews for Parmesan-Broiled Tilapia
"This was really really good, but there was so much butter in it that I had an upset stomach for hours afterward. I think I might try to lower the butter somehow. I only made 1 large filet, but only cut the topping in half and that was the right amount. Because it was a thicker, larger filet, it took longer to cook, somewhere around 8 minutes. We will make this again, but I'll try to figure out a way to lower the butter."
"Quick, easy and tasty. Perfect for a weeknight meal."
"We did not add the basel or celery salt because we were out but added garlic and paprika and then baked it to 145*because the fish was frozen. It turned out fantastic"
"great recipe. I would add a little salt and lengthen the cook time. I sprinkled fresh parsley on before serving."
"quick, easy & delicious!"
"This is wonderful! So delicious!"
"Loved it! Can I say it again, Loved it! Easy, tasty and everyone wanted seconds. I did pop mine in the microwave for a few mins as they were thick pieces and were done to perfection by looks but needed a bit more in the thick parts. We will have this one again and again."
"Nice flavor. Substitute your favorite herbs for the basil if you are not a fan."
"Tasted great :) Will definitely do again,"
"We loved the cheese spread on this fish. It was delicious!"
