My husband really liked this but I thought it was just ok. The fish was a little soggy (not sure why), and the whole dish seemed greasy. In fact, I had painful acid reflux for the rest of the evening because of this dish (and I don't get reflux often). Maybe too much butter? Maybe because I used olive oil mayo and not regular? I use olive oil mayo in all my other recipes, I've never had this problem. I did enjoy the flavor, which is why I gave it 4 stars.

My husband is a picky eater and up until I found this recipe, he has never liked any fish recipes that didn't require deep frying. This recipe is one of our absolute favorites!

Really good and simple enough that my husband was able to make it by himself:) Yummy!

<p>I was surprised at how tasty this was and how much my mayonnaise haters (they didn't know) loved it. Used lemon juice instead of lime and we are on a low-sodium diet so I used unsalted butter, omitted the salt and added more pepper...this worked great.</p>

This is probably the BEST tilapia I have ever had! I was out of lime juice and substituted Lemon juice and it's absolutely STILL amazing! LOVE IT. So easy it's embarrassing, yet doesn't taste simple! Kudos!

Easy and tasty recipe. I did not put in the butter because I saw no reason for it. It tasted great without it and the topping was probably thicker without it. I also didn't bother with the foil. I just sprayed my broiler pan with non-stick spray. Easy clean up and I didn't waste any foil. I will definitely be making this again.
