Thank you for your recipe. My husband and I loved it! It was quick and easy. Loved the flavor and crispy edges. Added some garlic powder and used I can't believe its butter. A keeper!
I doubled the topping mixture, added a LITTLE garlic salt. I also made brown rice. I used the extra mixture by pouring a small amt on the brown rice, then topping the brown rice with the fish and then, if you like, you can add still a little more of the mixture over the Tilapia. The mixture has an awesome taste and me and my dinner guests really enjoyed it! YUM YUM! First time making the recipe and it's a complete hit!
This recipe was definitely a keeper! It was flavorful and a nice change from our usual tilapia recipes!
