    blueguitargirl1985's Note:

    OK, here it is! My FIRST recipe post to the site, This recipe was given to me by my mom, I have NO idea where she got it, but it is just awesome, simple to make, and it is the ONLY fish my picky, picky 11 year old daughter will eat, she loves it! She actually BEGS me to make it. Update: After reading the reviews, I just want to emphasize the importance of using Panko breadcrumbs in this recipe. It makes a HUGE difference! I also have never baked this fish, so cannot predict the results. For those who have commented that the breading isn't sticking well, I have found that this happens to me as well, when I have used too much of the mustard/mayo combo. A thin coating is best! I hope you all enjoy this recipe, and thanks for taking the time to review it!

      This was super simple and just plain good. I'm not a fan of tilapia normally and wanted something to dress it up. This mustard/mayo coating did the trick. And my toddlers had seconds! I used breadcrumbs and dried parsley. I threw in some dried dill, too. The pan-frying seemed like too much trouble, so I baked mine in a 400-degree oven for 15 minutes on a foil-lined pan. They came out perfect with no pan to wash! We'll have this again.

      I baked mine in the oven at 400. Added italian seasoning, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and lemon pepper. It didn't get brown enough for me so next time I may try to fry it. Good taste.
