    ms_bold's Note:

    I found this on the Epicurious website, and my husband loved it served with buttered garlic noodles and steamed green beans. The original recipe called for Pollock or Pacific cod, but I always have Tilapia on hand for this easy dish.

      This recipe is excellent! My husband says it's the tastiest prepared tilapia he's had and I agree. I used light sour cream and reduced the butter by half and it was still very decadent. Highly recommend!

      I didn't have sour cream on hand so I substituted heavy cream. Loved it, thank you!
