Reviews for Tilapia & Lemon Sauce
"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!"
"I used frozen pollock instead of tilapia. I cooked the rice with leftover chicken broth instead of water, then seasoned it with a sprinkle of chicken bouillon granules. On the side, I served the Vegetable Trio featured in the magazine. It looked like a restaurant meal and is relatively healthy too. I'll make this again and again!"
