      Good, with modifications. Added garlic powder and a dash of cayenne...I combined the salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and cayenne and sprinkled it over the fish. After the breadcrumbs, I also added some chopped fresh oregano. I LOVE basil and it's growing in my herb garden so I specifically looked for a basil tilapia recipe. This one works. :)

      Love this recipe! The fish turned out very tender and flaky. The only adjustment I made was to use the stovetop instead of the microwave for the sauce, and I added a couple basil leaves and the paprika while it cooked down. I served this with a side of grilled vegetables, it didn't need anything else! Great spring/summer meal.

      Excellent recipe! I substituted vegetable broth for the olive oil and cayenne for the paprika. Really great tasting fish!
