"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."

"The flavor is similar to many other breaded fish recipes I've tried, but this one excels with ease of preparation. There's no dipping the fish in liquid, them slopping it into crumbs. There's no mess whatsoever - very quick and easy. And it's baked with minimal fat, so it's healthier than a lot of other recipes. This is a keeper for sure."
