I made this with basa fillets and let them marinate for a few hours in the dressing before dredging them in the breadcrumb mixture. The result yielded delicious results with minimum effort. A great make ahead meal too. Thank you!
I was looking for an easy tilapia recipe and this one was great. The only thing I didn't use was the Italian dressing because I didn't have any. Great and easy though!
