      This is a recipe DH & I differed on. He loved this presentation of tilapia. I liked the fish , the phyllo, and the sesame seeds. In making this again, I probably wouldn’t include the onions inside the pockets on my serving. I did have a little trouble in assembling the pocket. The cooked fish is fragile and 2 sheets of phyllo seemed a little flimsy in getting these folded. I was pleased at how moist the fish stayed in this dish. Even with the added bake time, the fish was very moist and flakey. The addition of the sesame seeds were a great finish. Great job!
