  • Very Good
    Instead of the salt, red pepper and paprika I used Old Bay Seasoning, instead of real butter I sprayed some spray butter on each fillet, and I used lime instead of lemon. Turned out really delicious, and was so quick! Served with brown rice and corn on the cob, with lime squeezed over everything. - 3/13/12

  • Incredible!
    I sub'd yogurt butter for butter and increased the amount of the spices a bit. I also used a spicier paprika for extra zip. Yummy- I've had a hard time finding white fish recipes that I like. I used White Ruffy (Swai) instead of Tilapia since it looked fresher. I don't think that made a difference. - 2/14/10
