While the breading was pretty tasty, the dish overall seemed unnecessarily fussy for the overall flavor payout. In my opinion the proportions were off as well. I used much less salt and butter than called for and still felt the dish mainly tasted like salted butter. (I mean I love butter as much as the next gal, but if I've taken the time to measure out a bunch of other spices, I'd like to taste them too). That said, it was a hit with the boyfriend that could be prepared pretty quickly. All in all, it was ok, but I won't be making it again.
The fish was moist and the coating was flavorful, however, my family just doesn't like Tilapia. They refer to it as the "facial tissue fish", LOL! I on the other hand like Tilapia for its mild flavor. I used Panko (Japanese) bread crumbs and even though I bought a lemon, I forgot to serve it. LOL! Next time, I'll use the coating on the fish Orange Roughy.
This is delicious. I'm not a huge fish fan, but this was soooo good. I didn't use as much parmesan cheese as it calls for, but this is the kind of recipe you can alter to your taste as you mix the ingredients. I also did not use the lemon, because I don't like lemon. I used olive oil to dip the fish in and also drizzled a little on the fish about half way through baking because it looked like it was getting a bit dry. I think this breading could be good on chicken or pork chops too. I would think even the pickiest person would like this. Maybe even convert a fish hater! It was super simple to make and most of the ingredients are already in your pantry.
