"Super simple and super delicious!"

"I changed this recipe up a bit. Turned out to be the best recipe I have ever made. I'm not a huge fan of red pepper flakes so I used 1 tsp of garlic and herbs (mrs dash), I used one egg instead of egg substitute and then I used the table blend by Mrs dash instead of pepper. I also cooked it uncovered for 10 minutes covered with foil for 8 minutes then uncovered for 2 minutes."

"I used the advice of a few others and added breadcrumbs to the parmesan mix...... turned out pretty good. Will make again."

"This recipe was ok. My husband complained that the egg substitute was too runny so it made preparing the fish difficult. I put Cajun seasoning on mine to make it more flavorful."
