I have been making this for years now, after first reading this recipe in 2007. This is a staple in our house, I make it at least once a month! Most times, I just use pretzels and mayo but every once in awhile I'll add some garlic powder or different flavors of Mrs. Dash. This recipe is so easy and versatile, you can use just about any herb or spice with it!
I used flounder filets (same size as the tilapia filets). I added a sprinkle of Old Bay to each side of fish (after the mayo) and wished I would have added even more. We did enjoy this (but I have to say that I ran out of pretzels so on the fourth filet I used the mayo, Old Bay, parmesan, then corn flakes and that version actually turned out better than the pretzels).
Made this recipe as instructed, with the exception of adding a tablespoon of dijon mustard to the mayo. I felt it was very bland. The coating browned up very nicely, and stayed on the fish, which was nice. I would try this again, but add more seasoning. Thanks for posting!
What a great idea.....I adapted it slightly by using lite mayo, adding spicy mustard and lemon juice. I also added some fresh grated parmesan, cracked black pepper to the pretzels and pulsed it in a food processor. From there on I followed the directions and the results were great. Thanks!!
Wow, this was fantastic! I don't really like fish, so I am always looking for ways to make it more palatable. I couldn't believe it when I couldn't put this down! I used honey wheat pretzels and low fat mayonnaise. Thanks for sharing this keeper!
This was awesome! I wish I would have made more because my 2 year old ate way more than I expected him to. I used half dijon mustard and half mayo for the coating and also added a little bit of dill and onion powder. My filets were still slightly frozen, so it took about 17 minutes to bake.
This was the first recipe I tried for my pretzel cookbook. (needless to say I have an abundance of pretzels.) I read the reviews and chrushed pretzels fine and added lemon and lemon pepper. Very tasty the nuttyness of the pretzels went well with the tilapia. Thanks for sharing.
very good I added some yellow mustard and lemon juice to the mayo. I will have to try it on chicken too.
Yes very easy to make. I made this on 2 fillets of flounder equaling 1/2 pound. I used 2 tablespoon of mayo to coat the fish. My mistake was that I didn`t crush the pretzels fine enough. I do think 1 cup would be plenty. This is a great way to get the children to eat their fish. I do suggest seasoning the fish with pepper or even mix in some mustard with the mayo for a littke more kick to it. Baked in 12 minutes. Thanks Laurie!
