Very good. Didn't have quite enough parmesan so I added panko, also added some Old Bay. I'm not one of those lucky people who love fish...my goal is to find palatable recipes for fish because it's so good for me. This recipe more than fit the bill.

Great recipe for tilapia! I used eight fillets, so doubled the other ingredients except I only used about a teaspoon of crushed red pepper. I also used two eggs instead of egg substitute and like some other reviewers, added some panko to the coating. I baked it on convection and then ran the fish briefly under the broiler to give it some extra crunch. Served it with a squeeze of fresh lemon. Yummy!Volunteer Field Editor

This was a quick & easy dinner. I used a whole egg and 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes. It was so good.

Nice and tasty fish recipe, I like the kick. I don't use egg substitute, so I used an egg instead, also, mixture wasn't sticking to fish, so I added some Panko.

I made this as-is, except that I cut the recipe in half, and used 1 egg instead of a 1/4C egg substitute. I used 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes and unfortunately it was still too spicy for me. My husband really liked it though. Next time when I cut the recipe in half I'll only use 1/8 tsp. I think the rest of the taste was pretty good though! I'm sure I'll love it after reducing the red pepper.

Very good recipe. Quick and easy to make and delicious. I did as others suggested and added maybe 1/4c of bread crumbs, and I also used 1 whole egg instead of egg substitute. Wife and I really liked it, but it was too spicy for our kids. I only used 1/2t of red pepper. Next time I'll tone down the pepper.

Quick & very flavorful. No need to substitute anything..It's delicious just the way it is. I like the fact that it's made with egg substitute for those of us who are trying to eat healthier.

Easy and flavorful. I subbed Old Bay for the Italian seasoning and used fresh preground parm. Crust was really nice. I baked at 425 for 8 minutes in a pan, then transferred to a greased cooling rack on top of that pan for the rest of cooking time--made the bottom crisper!
