I have a tough time getting my family to eat fish, but they enjoy when I make this dish. We add additional seasoning to the fish by sprinkling some season salt before dipping it in the egg. Then we add some tobasco pepper sauce to the egg mixture. Another substitution we use is Italian flavored bread crumbs. Overall a good recipe.
Made for Spring 2008 PAC. We weren't particularly thrilled with this. The sauce was very good, but we thought the fish could have used some additional seasoning as it was kinda bland. I will make the tomato sauce again and if I make the fish again, I would definitely add garlic to the coating mix for the fish.
I've been craving tilapia for a while, but I didn't know what to do with it--until I found this recipe! I did the recipe without the sauce, but I see how the slight acidity of the tomato sauce could compliment the richness of the fish. Overall, this is a fine recipe for even beginners.
WOW!!!! This was awesome. I couldn't find parmigiano-reggiano cheese so I used shredded parmesan and it was delicious. You can also have this without the tomatoes. Either way it's GOOD.. Also the breadcrumbs I used italian style so I didn't use the herbs. I loved cooking the fish in a fry pan in stead of oven.
