There are several recipes similar to this, but I prefer this one because it contains no butter or mayonnaise. This recipe also works well with orange roughy or catfish and can be easily doubled.

    I made this for lunch for my sister and me. It was SO good, that I'm adding it to my recipe box for future use. Great job! The paprika really gives a lot of color for the coating. This is now in my top ten favorite fish dishes to eat, and I'm really picky about fish, so that's a good thing.:) - 1/15/10

  • Delicious! I was worried that it would be dry or that the topping wouldn't stick without butter, but it stuck even better! Just the perfect amount of crunch and flavor, and so healthy! I usually make tilapia with garlic and lemon, so this was a great new option that will be used a lot. - 10/4/11

  • This was really good. Definitely a keeper. I omitted the pepper and paprika and replaced it with 2 tsps of Tastefully Simple's Smoked Paprika & Garlic Mix. In the last 5 minutes I sprinkled each with a dash of sea salt. Yummo! - 11/30/10
