Reviews for Tomato Walnut Tilapia

"My husband and I love tilapia and I serve it at least once a week. It's an inexpensive fish that actually tastes good if it has been frozen unlike many other types of fish. The only change I made to this recipe was I used macadamia nuts in lieu of walnuts as that is what I had. This fish was flavorful and moist."
"This is a very tasty recipe and I will certainly make it again."
"Yes, this is good. I left out the salt, it truly doesn't need it if you are using breadcrumbs, and the lemon juice adds that "just right" flavor. I didn't salt our fish fillets and the flavor didn't suffer. Also I used a non-stick skillet used to cook the fish in the first cooking stage and reduced the amount of butter from a Tablespoon to a 1/2 teaspoon. Then I transferred it to a broiler-style pan to finish the oven work."
"Delicious, even better with halibut instead of tilapia."
"Very good! I took some other suggestions and baked it in the oven. Also added a small amount of parmesan cheese to the topping."
