Reviews for Sesame Dill Fish
"Great weekday meal - very good! Crispy and easy to prepare"
"We really enjoyed this recipe. I used Tilapia, since I keep that in the freezer. Great weekday meal that doesn't take much time to cook."
"Loved it. Used tilapia. Crispy and full of flavor. Normally, I have to have tartar sauce to enjoy fish, but not with this recipe. No additions or changes, just halved recipe for two, but it was so delicious, we wished we'd had enough for another piece each."
"It was simple and easy..wasn't real impressed with it using catfish, perhaps another type of fish"
"I'm always looking for ways to cook fish that will please my picky eaters, and this one did the trick. The combination of sesame, dill and lemon really made the tilapia taste great!"
