"I am not a big fan of fish, but I used the Tilapia we had on hand and I thought it was really good. I will eat fish if made this way for sure. Thanks!"

"Yum! I made this recipe with flounder and omitted the salt. It was still delicious, and the fish was very tender."

"We really like this, the spice mix was not to much The butter combo adds another great layer of flavor. (My fillets were a little thick so I did cook longer than suggested)"

"I found this recipe a nice change from the usual southern fried catfish although my DH and MIL did not. I did add 1/4 tsp dried crushed rosemary and served it with the Herb Rice Recipe, but added 2 Tbsp lemon juice after the rice was cooked. Served with a salad and it was excellent!! Will be marked as a favorite in 'My Recipe Box'."
