Absolutely delicious! I was skeptical until I tasted it. I used Zesty Italian dressing and Old Bay Seasoning. Will be fixing this one again and have even added to my Recipe Box.

This was not my favorite, but my finicky 7 year old who only likes her fish fried ate it up! Worth making again just for her.

Very tasty! I baked the tilapia and topped with a little bit of breadcrumbs instead of doing in the skillet and still turned out very yummy.
