Really good and SO easy!!! Even my boys enjoyed it. After the tilapia was cooked, I threw a bunch of fresh spinach on top and put a lid on it to wilt. Used brown rice (what we prefer), but that was the only change. I don't think I even used 1/4 cup of salad dressing, and that is such a low cal/fat way to prepare it. Thanks so much!

Thank you for the recipe, I didn't have all the ingredients so what I did was substitute balsamic vinaigrette for Italian dressing, garlic salt for regular salt, and dried parsley for cumin and Old Bay. Regardless, the tilapia came out soooo delicious! Next time hopefully I can try it with the original ingredients, but thank you for the initial recipe!!

This was pretty good but the salad dressing was a little overpowering to the fish. Thanks!!

We really enjoyed this dish. The kids 2 & 5 ate it without a problem. We had this with sugar snap peas and wild rice.

I thought it was OK. One son liked it, the other didn't. I was in the middle. I might make it again.

Well, Shirley, I finally got some Old Bay seasoning on a trip to Buffalo so I was able to finally try this recipe. We just loved it. The only change I made was to substitute basmati rice for the jasmine rice as I don't really care for jasmine rice. Otherwise, it's a winner!

This was really good and easy. I didn't have fat free on hand, I used Wishbone Robusto italian dressing. Served with my "fried" cabbage. Thanks for sharing with me Shirl!

We liked the flavor well enough but I had a big problem with it sticking to the pan. After reading reviews that mentioned the dressing being overpowering I used just a little bit and that might have been the problem. I think I will try this again but I will pour a little dressing in the bottom of a baking dish and bake it and see if that works better for me.

I have no idea what went wrong for us with this recipe but none of us liked it and I ended up throwing the entire pan of fish away. I followed directions exactly except I used a different brand of dressing then the one mentioned. We thought the dressing taste overpowered everything and that the fish was very salty. Thanks for the recipe though!
