Reviews for Parmesan-Crusted Tilapia
"loved this crispy crust"
"sounds delicious but has too much fat."
"I love this recipe! I have never been able to cook fish very well. I always seemed to over cook the fish. This recipe is super easy and delicious! Can't wait to make the recipe again!"
"Very good! My husband loved it very much!"
"a big hit with my 4 and 6 year old and my sneaky husband! Tasty and very easy!"
"Wonderfully good! What more can I say. Everyone around our table said it was a keeper. Simple ingredients and easy to make, looked wonderful too on the plate. We had the Marmalade Candied Carrots (TOH) and the went wonderful with it and the sauce that spilled over on the fish was a great combination."
"Delicious! I'm not a big fish eater, but this is my favorite fish dish thus far. I made exactly as the recipe instructed, using regular Ritz crackers. The breading is tasty, and that hint of lemon adds the perfect extra flavor."
"Yummy! Very flavorful, tastes better than Olive Garden's!"
"My family really liked this. Good flavors."
"My husband and I aren't big fish lovers, but because of health reasons, have been told we should eat more fish. I tried this recipe, making adjustments as others have suggested. I eliminated the egg and flour using water. I used whole wheat Ritz crackers. I baked the fish in a cooking spray coated pan, and sprayed a squirt of the oil over the breaded fish before baking. They were absolutely wonderful! I will definitely keep this recipe."
