I have to give this recipe 5 stars for ease of preparation, taste and versatility. Going by the 1st reviewer and reading the few ingredients, I added 1/2 tsp each Garlic powder and onion powder to the mayo sauce. That sure did the trick. My DIL was over for a few minutes when I took it out of the oven. She stayed long enough for a bite and a copy of the recipe. She liked it, but, thought I was a bit heavy handed w/ the garlic, LOL. I felt this is a good basic recipe which readily lends itself to many different spices, and types of fish. I used a single, large Tilapia fillet just for myself. Thanks, Sarah, for posting.

Seemed like a lot of work for the end result. Fish was moist but not very flavorful. I think I would add a couple more drops of hot pepper sauce next time.
