"This is a quick and delicious meal. I used tilapia filets because that's what I had on hand. I also used fresh basil not dried and used a heaping tablespoon or so. While the fish was baking I made some parmesan crisps to serve with the fish. It made for a very pretty presentation and added a bit more salt flavor that other reviewers said they were missing."

"I liked it but thought maybe it could use a little garlic and onion powder. Liked the parmesan on it. I usually bake cod at 425 for 18 to 20 minutes and mine was thick. It was good this way."

"This is a nice simple and quick recipe that makes a lovely presentation. We did think it was a little bland so I will add a little more seasoning next time, probably some garlic powder and onion powder. I will also slice the tomatoes very thin and use a little more cheese."

"I loved this recipe. I've got gestational diabetes and am used not enjoying dishes lately. This was not the case with this recipe. I loved how the tomatoes and parmesan cheese toned down the basil and lemon mix just right. I would have loved it even without the tomatoes. It was super easy to make. We made it with orange roughy and I just can't say enough how good it was! This is a great healthy dish that we'll definitely have again, even after I'm not longer pregnant and have gestational diabetes."
