Reviews for Tilapia & Lemon Sauce
"My family loved the fish and sauce. Didn't have almonds but will try next time. Even used gluten free flour. Served with the Vegetable Trio as pictured."
"Fish is really good but there wasn't enough sauce. I would double that next time and add a little more liquid. It thickens pretty quickly and doesn't pour."
"The fish was good - the sauce not so much. I made it with white cooking wine, which ruined the taste. I'll try chicken broth next time."
"Really good! My kids even are it - without the sauce. Great with some rice and vegetables."
"This turned out very good. Maybe a little more lemon next time. The toasted almonds were a nice touch. Will be making this again."
"This recipe was not only excellent tasting, it was so easy to prepare. My husband said he could eat this anytime! I made this on a Tuesday and since it is Lent, he may get it again on Friday!"
"Excellent! I used thyme in place of parsely, and used Kentucky Kernal Seasoned flour (doubled) and two cans of chicken broth. This is now my favorite fish dish!"
"Not usually a big fish person, but this recipe is great.The tilapia doesn't have a strong fishy taste. This recipe is a favorite of our family."
"Very easy and good! I doubled the lemon juice and didn't even bother with the almonds or parsley. My 6 year old even loved it!"
