      Tried your Tilapia recipe tonight since we had a craving for fish and chips... l must say Uncle Bill we both agreed that it was really very good! I stayed true to your instructions, but cheated a little, I used my electric deep fryer instead. Added a photo, hope you don't mind.

      My dh and I this for dinner tonight and we absolutely loved it. Complimented it with sliced tomatoes marinated in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, garlic, basil and oregano. We also had a wonderful salad with sunflower seeds, almonds and raspberries. Great dinner, I will definately make this again! :D
