This is a good recipe that leaves room for some tweaking. I add a dash of onion powder, garlic powder, and chili powder to the mix. It isn't necessary to dip the fish in egg wash first. Actually, I pat the filets dry and then spritz each side with some nonstick cooking spray to help the crumbs adhere. I grease my baking dish with a little butter and also spritz it with nonstick cooking spray. The filets are done between 12 and 15 minutes. If you want a crispy coating, turn the oven off after about 12 minutes and let the fish sit in the oven for about 5 to 7 minutes. The coating will be nice and brown and crispy. Serve with tartar sauce.

So easy and everyone ate it. I added extra parmesan, garlic powder, and a combo of panko and regular bread crumbs. The instructions were easy to follow and the timing was just right. Will definitely make this again!

I dipped fish in milk first to help breading stick and added a little butter as it cooked to get it crispy. Nice, easy way to prepare fish.

Excellent. I used Panko instead of soft breadcrumbs. To make this even faster for a weeknight, I combine all ingredients for the coating the night before, and it can be ready for the oven in 2 minutes! Great drizzled with lemon juice right before serving.

Definitely dredge the fish in egg. Panko crumbs leave it very crunchy. I use 1/2 panko and 1/2 seasoned bread crumbs, which gives it a good flavor. Good recipe to keep.

I'v been fishing for a long time around 50 yrs. so just a tip on how to make your fish tast better turn the fillets over flat side up and you will see a dark line running from end to end this is the blood line! it makes the fish taste strong so remove it by slicing it away then turn it back over and make sure its gone there might be a little left on the bottom edge i'v shown friends this and every one has thanked me as they liked the taste of there fish better"

We really liked this, but what improved it immensely was dipping the fish in eggs before coating in the bread crumb mixture. I was amazed that the breadcrumbs fully adhered to the fish since I've had issues with that in the past with the recipes! I think I would add some seafood seasoning to it as well to give it a little more flavor, but this is a great basic recipe that can be adapted however you choose!

I followed the advice of another reviewer and used Panko crumbs instead of bread crumbs for more crunch--glad I did! I did everything else exactly as written. However, I wish I had also used the egg dip first to hold the crumbs on better. I will also do that next time. And this was such an easy yet delightful treatment of fish that there WILL be many "next times"!

Made this for dinner last night & I must say it was FANTASTIC! After reading the previous reviews & for health reasons, made these minor changes, used egg beaters to dip the fish in first & used seasoned Panko crumbs & Romano cheese. Omitted oregano. Served it with potatoes, pan fried mushrooms. This is a keeper in my recipe box!Brandi, thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe with us all!
