Best fish I ever tasted but I omitted the Italian dressing. Not by choice but because I didn't have it in my fridge. I added sugar to balance the tang in the lemon, spoon of butter and a dollop of mayo. Unbelievable how great it taste! It's like an angel came and cooked it for me.
I'm getting ready to move and am trying to use up the food in the house, and needed a recipe to finish up the tilapia. This one was perfect and I really liked how fast and easy it was, and how tasty. I did make a couple of minor substitutions based on what I had in the house. Instead of light Italian dressing, I used up some creamy vidalia onion dressing, adding a little olive oil to make it more like Italian dressing. And I didn't have cream cheese, so I used a little monterey jack. The dressing sub worked fine, but I would stick to the cream cheese next time...though the fish was good enough it would have been fine without the sauce. I'll be making this again!
