Reviews for Dijon-Crusted Fish
"Wow. This is hands down the best recipe for Tilapia I have ever made. I added a little more than a teaspoon of horseradish (because I love horseradish) and omitted the butter. I felt like the fat from the mayo was sufficient. The breadcrumb mixture still browned and crisped perfectly. Absolutely delicious!"
"This is absolutely the best fish dish I have had in a long time!"
"This was REALLY good. Making fish is so easy, and this recipe was a great addition to my box. The horseradish added a little zing to it, but it wasn't overpowering at all. I think the lemon juice was also a nice addition. We cooked only 1 filet, but it was huge so I cut the topping only in half. It was a good amount. I put ours in for 11 minutes (my oven runs hot) and that was perfect. We will make this again!"
"Don't like fish, but this I just loved!!!!"
"This was a hit!!! My mom had never had salmon before (funny about fishy tastes) and she loved it. Will definitely make this again!"
"Delicious! I was out of Dijon mustard so I used spicy brown mustard. I will definitely be making this again."
"Very tasty! Crunchy from dry bread crumbs."
"Very simple, nice change."
"This was amazing and a definite winner!"
"This recipe was so good."
"This recipe was excellent! I did not have horseradish and substituted cream of tartar. It turned out so good. My husband loved it! When I took it out of the oven, it was all white. I placed it in the broiler for five minutes and came out perfect. Delicious!!!"
"This recipe was a huge hit with my entire family. The dijon flavor was fantastic and the fish was moist and delicious! I will DEFINITELY be making this again."
"Made as-is. Turned out very moist. Flavor was mild and not overpowering."
"My husband said that this was a "do-over". Made recipe exactly as written."
"This was the first recipe (and only because it is so delicious!) I tried. I used tilapia and skipped the horseradish (personal preference). bake for 15 minutes and it is perfect! I keep making it again and again. Maybe some day I will break out and try something new. :)"

"This was a great recipe! I used swai instead of tilapia. I didn't have horseradish so I just added a little extra mustard and instead of bread crumbs I used crushed crisp rice cereal. I will be making it again with the horseradish!"
"Delicious and so easy. I sprinkle some shredded Parmesan on on the top to given it an extra-crunchy top. I make this recipe often."
"Delicious. I make this recipe often."
"Would be good to add a little red pepper on the fish also!"
"I was afraid to put in the entire teaspoon of horseradish so I cut it in half. I'll be making it again and next time I'll try the full teaspoon. My husband and son really like this. This recipe was very good."
"My husband and I thought this recipe was fantastic. I used tilapia and will be making this again. Thanks"
"It's important to have really fresh fish for this to taste good. It wasn't particularly strong with the Dijon, so you don't have to worry about that."
"Wow, this was one of the best fish recipies I've ever tasted! I used swai instead of tilapia, and I didn't have horseradish, so I just added a bit more mayo and a couple dashes of hot sauce."
"OMG! This recipe is absolutely marvelous! It would make even a fish hater like it."
"My whole family loved it! The fish stays moist and the crunch on top gives it some texture. My teenagers suggested we try in on chicken cutlet."
"This was awesome! My husband raved over it saying it's restaurant quality. Will make again for sure."
"GREAT recipe!!! All the family loved it! Best from all talapia I ever had. I did not use horseradish, but without it fish was great!"
"This was very tasty. I HATE low-fat mayo & you can't even taste it with the other ingredients. I also tried the dijon-crust on mahi mahi which was also yummy!"
"This is one of our family favorites. You would never know it's diet food. The only change is we use halibut fillets instead of Tilapia."
"My daughter asks for seconds of this."
"Great flavor and very moist. My kids and husband love it."
"My family loved it. Since I didn't have any Dijon mustard I used yellow mustard with seasoning and it still turned out great. We all thought that the Dijon would make it even better."
"This was awsome. I could not get enough of the sauce. I will try it on other fish and maybe some chicken."
"This was awesome. My husband and I both loved it...moist and very similar to having tartar sauce on it. Also very low carb."
"Very tasty, but don't use tilapia. Tilapia is cheap, but it has no flavor and it's one of the least healthy fish. I used cod. My husband always says he doesn't like fish, but he really liked this."
"I am not normally a fan of fish or dijon so I was very surprised with how tasty this recipe was! I cut the dijon in half and added a bit of spice and it was so tasty. Defiantly use Panko bread crumbs, it turned out great, and LOOKED good too!! will make again"
"My husband said he liked this recipe, but would probably like it better made with a different type of fish "because tilapia doesn't have much flavor to it". (I don't eat fish, just fix it for my husband, who likes trout, cod, and salmon.)"
"I'm not a big fish fillet person, but this was AMAZING! Just delicious! I can't wait to make it again!"
"next time I'll pan sear first before i bake it, needs more crunch. good flavor tho."
"Absolutely delicious. Non-fish lovers have asked me for the recipe."
"The whole family loved this one, including my 2 young daughters."
"This was absolutely delicious!!"
"Absolutely love this on fresh salmon but have used it on cod, tilapia etc! I don't always use the bread crumbs. The sauce with the parmesan cheese is enough to give a delicious flavor to the fish. This is a keeper!"
"This was yummy!"
"I'm continually trying new fish recipes & this is the best yet! easy to prepare with ingredients I have & I didn't need to serve a sauce with it."
"I used it with fresh Alaskan halibut and it was delicious!!"
"I used Swai fish fillets so we got Omega 3's as well and it turned out fantastic. Also used Panko for dry bread crumbs. Will definitely be making this recipe again."
"I used fresh Atlantic Cod and this was truly wonderful. I made my own breadcrumbs by oven-toasting 2 pieces of Ezekiel's low sodium sprouted grain breadn (plenty left over for next time), I used Best Foods' Reduced Fat Mayo, and I Can't Believe It's Not Butter (2 tsp from the stick version). I think this recipe would also work well on red snapper, sole, trout, or halibut. And it is so, easy!"
"Wonderul, mild recipe. I was pleasantly surprised by how nicely the various flavors come together subtly. The crumb-topping was actually crunchy, & the fish was still moist. Definitely a keeper for fish! My husband & 4-yr-old were a bit skeptical, but everyone gobbled it up right away when they actually tasted it. Also, I used Ital-seas. bread crumbs & spicy brown instead of dijon, because that's what a I had on hand. Worked well. Thanks for the great recipe!"
"light and delish. used whole wheat bread panko crumbs."
"great taste, easy to prepare, hubby loves the flavors thank"
"This was fabulous! Moist, flavorful, just perfect. My husband loved it and he is fussy about "new" flavors and "That's not how I ever had it". Thanks, a real keeper."
"Both my husband and I love this recipe. I will make this again. Always love a new recipe for fish! Yummy!!"
"This fish is good, but not one I'd serve if my third son was home, as he's deathly allergic to seafood. I don't know what I'd do for that night, but this would NOT be on the menu, as I will not watch my third son die. I will, however, serve it when he's not home, as we love seafood and find this recipe simply delicious."
"Family loves it and wants it again soon"
"This had very good flavor. I think when I make it again I will cut back on the mayonnaise mixture; it was plenty soupy for my family's taste."
"I did not care for the flavor combinations."
"Excellent dish. Fast, easy & tasty. Did not have horseradish, but wasn't necessary."
"i used walleye and everyone raved about it"
"This works just as well on catfish. I omit the horseradish and use honey dijon mustard and it's a favorite."
"Great recipe. I substituted panko for the dry bread crumbs for a crunchier topping"
"very delicious!! My family loves it"
