    dianegrapegrower's Note:

    I'm not fond of fish, but even I like this dish. Tilapia is mild, and the spicy crust is very appealing. I like to make the crumb crust in bulk and freeze in meal sized amounts. Then this becomes a super quick weeknight meal.

      Very good, however I changed it up a bit LOL I am somewhat like Sandra Lee when it comes to cooking LOL I crushed Hint of Lime Tostitos, added southwest seasoning, and fresh cilantro. I still followed the egg dipping and baking temp/time and it was delicious.

      I liked the idea of this recipe and added a few twists. I used black, red, green and white tortilla chips chopped with the cillantro and lime zest. Very eye apealing. I have tried this on tilapia, grouper, cod and snapper. For a little more zip add a pinch of chipotle. It is a WOW.

      Our local grocery store sells already prepared Tortilla Crusted Tilapia and I LOVE it, so I thought I'd try to find the recipe -- this is a pretty close match! I don't bake a lot of fish but this was very easy to prepare and super yummy -- not "fishy" tasting at all. Best of all? My picky 1 year old gobbled it up. That alone makes it worth 5 stars in my book!
