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!

Great recipe! Quick and easy and even my children (who don't normally eat fish) loved it.

This was so good! I am always wondering what else to do with tilapia and haven't always had the best luck with baked fish. I was skeptical going in with this recipe but it turned out delicious! I didn't have any lemon juice but I did the rest of the recipe as directed. My hubby, the ultimate picky eater, thought the fish was awesome. Great recipe!

This was wonderful. I always have a hard time thinking about what to do with fish so I don't make it often. I will be making this again. DH and I loved it.

Although DH thought it was a nice change from tilapia on the grill, I was disappointed that the basil, lemon and wine flavors did not infuse the fish very much. It was quick and easy, which is always a plus, but I might try running the basil, lemon and butter through the blender next time, then coating both sides of the fillets before sprinkling on the bread crumbs and onion powder. Still in all, it was good.

This sounded good, but our family just didn't enjoy it all that much. I expected more melding of the flavors... the wine, butter and lemon all has such potential. I think perhaps this "sauce" combo might work better reduced on the stovetop, and then poured over the fish.
