Reviews for Tilapia with Jasmine Rice
"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."
"This was easy and tasty too!"
"This dish is to die for..Shirl has made if for me personally and it was wonderful. Thanks Shirl Girl...Jan"
