MY REVIEW

This is a very tasty recipe and I will certainly make it again.

MY REVIEW

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.

This was very good. I baked it in the oven with everything on it and it turned out very good. I love the crunch the walnuts give it.
