"This was good but I doubt that I would make it again. It turned out a little dry and I had trouble getting the walnuts to stick so I basically piled them on top. I used tilapia and it was 50/50 in my house as to whether or not they liked this dish. Good, but not what I was hoping for."

"A surprisingly delicious combo. The mix of walnuts, bread crumbs and sesame seeds creates a crunchy and tasty coating. The sauce is an excellent accent. Once the fish was done I put them on a butter coated foil lined cookie sheet and kept warm in the oven until ready to serve dinner. Grocery stores did not have orange roughy so I used tilapia."

"Well, my husband is allergic to walnuts so I used peanuts instead and I already had flounder in my freezer but other than that I followed the recipe and my family really liked it. My son was the only exception who liked the fish without the crusty topping. I will definitely make this again. Very easy and quick."

"This sounds delicious, but I must point out that roughy is considered an endangered species... Perhaps substitute a different fish?"
