Reviews forParmesan-Crusted Tilapia
"A good, easy dinner! I made it exactly as written except cutting it into 1/4 since that's all the fish I had. This is the first time I've made fish in a frying pan (I usually bake it), so while the first side looked good, the other side was a tad burnt. So keep an eye on your fish. I may have had the pan just a tad too high (my fault). I'll definitely be making this again!"
"Very good! easy to make. Love the cracker crust."
"loved this crispy crust"
"sounds delicious but has too much fat."
"I love this recipe! I have never been able to cook fish very well. I always seemed to over cook the fish. This recipe is super easy and delicious! Can't wait to make the recipe again!"
"Very good! My husband loved it very much!"
"a big hit with my 4 and 6 year old and my sneaky husband! Tasty and very easy!"
"Wonderfully good! What more can I say. Everyone around our table said it was a keeper. Simple ingredients and easy to make, looked wonderful too on the plate. We had the Marmalade Candied Carrots (TOH) and the went wonderful with it and the sauce that spilled over on the fish was a great combination."
"Delicious! I'm not a big fish eater, but this is my favorite fish dish thus far. I made exactly as the recipe instructed, using regular Ritz crackers. The breading is tasty, and that hint of lemon adds the perfect extra flavor."
"Yummy! Very flavorful, tastes better than Olive Garden's!"
