"I usually do not care for fish but had some tilapia in the freezer for the hubby and decided to use this recipe to use them up. This was really good. We both ate them up and am looking forward to trying it with the cod next time."

"This was good. I coated both sides with the breading and used seasoned bread crumbs. The fish stayed moist, was quite flavorful, and went together quickly."
