"My husband & I just tried this recipe. It was wonderful. We didn't care one way or the other about the jasmine rice. It was good but nothing great. We also added asparagus to the meal. The next time we make this we'll have it with brown rice."

"Absolutely delicious! I was skeptical until I tasted it. I used Zesty Italian dressing and Old Bay Seasoning. Will be fixing this one again and have even added to my Recipe Box."

"This was not my favorite, but my finicky 7 year old who only likes her fish fried ate it up! Worth making again just for her."

"Very tasty! I baked the tilapia and topped with a little bit of breadcrumbs instead of doing in the skillet and still turned out very yummy."
