    I used a yogurt Caesar dressing mixed into the panko which I spread onto the filets so I skipped the egg dip. Delicious!

    Fish turned out moist and tender. However, I think I will try the other reviewers suggestion of drizzling with olive oil after breading.

    The recipe was simple and easy to follow but for some reason my breading came off when turning the fish. Otherwise it was good.

    Very, very tasty and flavorful. Fearing not thick enough, I double-coated one fillet but it was just too much breading; original recipe is correct amount. Flavorful and easy to make.

    I made this for supper tonight just as written except I drizzled each filet with a scant teaspoon of olive oil after all the breading was on . They were delicious, restaurant quality and I will be making them again.

    We all ate it but I thought it was dry.
