Top Review by DailyInspiration

Great recipe -- loved the tilapia cooked this way. The combination of the flour and cornmeal made a very light breading. The sauce was great; however, my adobo seasoning was a little salty so I reduced the amount used in the breading mixture and deleted the salt. Finally, a fish that does not taste fishy!!!! We will definitely be having this dish again! Made for the AUS/NZ Make My Recipe Tag, November, 2011.
