Very good, extremely easy to prepare and good flavor. I added 1/2 clove of crushed garlic to the crumb mixture and more lemon zest than the recipe called for. The sprinkled lemon juice at the end made the fish have an intense lemon flavor.

I used about a pound of tilapia fillets, so I increased the breadcrumbs slightly and upped the zest. I had fairly thick fillets so I had to cook them for almost 4 min a side... I only wish my fillets had turned out as beautiful as CarolineCooks!!! Mine were fairly dark and not really that crispy... but the taste was amazing. I will definitely make this again but I might try pan frying with olive oil instead of butter or maybe even baking them to get a better crunchy crust. I am going to add lots more zest too since that really was the star of all the seasonings! I served it with Lemon Cilantro Rice Pilaf (Lemon Cilantro Rice Pilaf) and a green salad. Thanks for sharing!

My DH and I loved this dish. The zest really made it. I used lime because it's all I had. Thanks!

4 Star meal, we enjoyed it very much. I think next time I am going to add some red pepper flakes to give it a little nip. But this one is a keeper for me.

Very nice. The parm helps to make a great and tasty crust. The lemon and herbs give it just the right flavor. I used additional lemon rind and juice and sauteed them in olive oil and butter. Served with rice and my 24k Carrots 24k Carrots. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing it!

Crunchy and yummy! Lovely flavor. I didn't have iItalian flavored bread crumbs, so made my own, adding 1tsp Italian spice mix to plain bread crumbs, could have used 11/2tsp. I will also dobble the lemon rind, next time.

This recipe was wonderful! The only change I made was at the end. After I took up the fish, I put 2 TBS. butter & juice of 1 small lemon in the skillet and let it blend for a minute or so, then used as a dip for the fish. I will be fixing this often!!!
