      This recipe was easy to make and the tilapia came out perfectly cooked with a great texture, outside and in. I followed the recipe exactly, but next time I will follow the review suggestion to use cayenne instead of Old Bay bc we found the coating a bit bland. I made a horseradish sauce instead of tartar (prepared horseradish and ketchup), as we like it better, and that did make up for the blandness. Still, I would prefer not to have to dip the fish in sauce, given this is WW. Potatoes also were a bit bland, so maybe salt and vinegar is the way to enjoy those. Note that we are from New Orleans, so we do like our food spicy. Others may find it seasoned enough.

      I am always looking for a different way to make tilapia and saw this in a tag game. Very good directions, easy to follow. Used low-fat buttermilk and not quite 24 oz of fish. The cornmeal mix was just enough for the fish. I forgot to spray the potatoes b4 cooking, but they still turned out fine. I used parchment paper and would recommend spraying the rack b4 putting the fish on it, as they did stick a little. I cooked the fish 5 minutes longer for good measure. My fish hating DD didn't like it, but the rest of the family, including the 4 yo did.

      I was quite pleased with this - the fish was satisfyingly crunchy. Instead of old bay, I added a sprinkle of cayenne to add some zip. The tartar sauce was really simple and tasted good. I tossed the potatoes with some vinegar before cooking. All in all, a lovely lunch. Thanks for posting!
