"This is a great recipe. Delicious and quick. I roasted asparagus in the oven at the same time and temp. Everything came out perfect."

"All-time favorite tilapia recipe! I've made this so many time... it's quick, easy, delicious! I usually use a prime rib rub, but this last time I used the Montreal Steak Seasoning that the previous reviewer mentioned. REALLY GOOD. If using the Montreal Steak Seasoning, skip the salt. There's plenty in there already. Next time I think I'll try the Montreal chicken Seasoning."

"We love this versatile fish. It pairs well with so many sides and even my picky teens like it. Next time I make it, I will omit or decrease the salt, since my husband found it a bit too salty."

"I found this recipe a little over a year ago and I have used it so many times. It is one of our absolute favorite quick dinner recipes! For such a bland fish, this recipe really makes it something incredible. We like to add a little fresh Parmesan cheese to the top about 5 minutes before its done. Such a good addition!"
