      This was very easy to make and quick. I found it tasty as well. I have to taste frequently as I am cooking and I did add more seasoning than which the recipe calls. We like it spicy but not just with heat. Since I am from the south, I did add more of New Orleans spin on it by adding Emril's Essence. The next time that I make this I may add a table spoon or so of green pepper. The problems that I had were of my making as I had bought a bag of franken fish, that were all different sizes and thickness. But hey it was really inexpensive. So save your self from my mistakes and buy fish that are all the same weight, thickness and size. This is a keeper and thank you for sharing.

      This was so simple to make and it was probably the best tilapia I have ever made. Loved the crab topping.

      Very Very good! I didnt have low-fat mayo, so I used the fat kind and I used imitation crab. Loved it, thanks!
