"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!"
"this recipe was great and tasty! The only thing i found was that i used up most most of the crumb mixture before crusting all the fish!!"
"This is a wonderful coating for tilapia! Loved the touch of jalapeno and the lime and the seasonings. I had a quarter of a sweet red pepper to use up which added a nice bit of colour. Also had no cilantro so subed with parsley. All in all the coat made th tilapia very flavourful. Thansk for posting."
"I admit - I messed with your recipe, dianegrapegrower. Instead of regular corn tortillas, I used tortilla chips (plain, not any fancy flavor) and amped the seasonings a little - more cumin, some coriander powder, more red chile powder, and a dash of cayenne. I also added more lime juice than called for and some finely zested lime rind. Everything else was pretty much the same. The tortilla chips retained a lot of their crispiness even after cooking and had such a nice "corn" flavor. I can imagine that using real tortillas would be good, too, but I wanted that crunch. The whole family enjoyed this."
"I've made this twice. My kids love to help tear the tortillas and batter the fish. It's delicious and we never have leftovers! I was worried that it might be a bit spicy for my young kids, but there were no complaints!"
"Good recipe, but you might find (like I did) that using fresh corn tortillas as opposed to tortilla chips makes the breading a little tricky. It's so moist that your coverage could suffer. It is the healthier alternative, though, and the flavor's still good."
"Very nice and flavorful. Will make again, thank you for sharing."
"We liked this a lot. I don't really like the taste of cumin, so I used a 1/2 tsp coriander instead. My husband said that it wasn't "spicy" enough and he usually doesn't like anything too spicy. Perhaps I'll double the spices next time, but it was still very good."
"I dont know why I didnt like this very much. I have tried 3 different recipes and none have made me happy so I think it is just me. The tortilla mixture tasted and smelled good but somehow I didnt like it all put together. Thanks for sharing anyway, it was very easy to make. :)"
"This is the one I've been looking for! The hospital served this when I had my second baby and I needed to have the recipe. Thanks, my family was getting sick of bland fish."
"I just started cooking fish, for some reason I have always been afraid I would ruin it. This was fabulous! My husband and I loved it."
"This was quite good. I used white corn tortillas, less salt and more lime (plus wedges to squeeze on at the table). The tortillas give a nice and unique flavor to the crust."
"This was a very easy recipe, and it tasted wonderful. I used about half of the cilantro that the recipe called for, and I did not add the jalepeno pepper."
"This was pretty good. Quite tasty and came together easy. Only complaint was that it didn't brown as much as I would of liked but would definately make again because of the good flavor. Thanks!!"
"Very easy fish recipe to prepare, and spicy enough so that it is not a bland dish. I love spicy food, and it being a light meal, I loved it even more! Thank you for a great tilapia recipe. :)"
"This was great. I previously rated the wrong talapia recipe. This is the one I tried and my family loved it. I will try the other one next."
"My daughter and boyfriend really liked this. I thought it was ok :O) I used white corn tortillas. It's a good way to use up those leftover tortillas I never know what to do with! Thanks!!"
