  • Incredible!

    This recipe was fantastic, 5 stars! Easy, versatile, and clean up was a breeze. I bumped up the spice amounts and added garlic powder and old bay seasoning to the mayo mix. Soaked my fillets in skim milk for 20 minutes to give them a sweeter taste, rolled them in Panko, and sprayed PAM on top. YUM! - 5/8/09

    Really easy but too much of a limey taste for us. Did sub nonfat plain yogurt for mayo (always do now). Not crazy about the breadcrumbs, would leave out if I were to make again. Omitted the butter, didn't need. Easy, tastes good if you like lime taste. - 3/2/11

    There is fish call Basa, it looks almost like cat fish, but do not have the funny taste cat fish has; it will soak up what ever seasons is put on the fish, I love to use them for all my fish dishes - 7/11/09

  • Delicious! I made this for my parents and me.It is simple to make for novice cookers (like myself). I tweeked the recipe a little: I used garlic powder, used a little bit of butter spray on the tilapia, and left out the mayonnaise. It was still fantastic and I will make this again for sure! - 6/11/12
