  • This was amazing, I made it exactly as directed and WOW. I have been working hard on finding that perfect tilapia recipe and this is it! not even a hint of that fishy taste that makes us cringe, it left me wanting more, and I'm not a fish fan! absolutely excellent, I told everyone about it! - 2/24/09
