    I have been making this for years now, after first reading this recipe in 2007. This is a staple in our house, I make it at least once a month! Most times, I just use pretzels and mayo but every once in awhile I'll add some garlic powder or different flavors of Mrs. Dash. This recipe is so easy and versatile, you can use just about any herb or spice with it!

    I used flounder filets (same size as the tilapia filets). I added a sprinkle of Old Bay to each side of fish (after the mayo) and wished I would have added even more. We did enjoy this (but I have to say that I ran out of pretzels so on the fourth filet I used the mayo, Old Bay, parmesan, then corn flakes and that version actually turned out better than the pretzels).

    Made this recipe as instructed, with the exception of adding a tablespoon of dijon mustard to the mayo. I felt it was very bland. The coating browned up very nicely, and stayed on the fish, which was nice. I would try this again, but add more seasoning. Thanks for posting!

    What a great idea.....I adapted it slightly by using lite mayo, adding spicy mustard and lemon juice. I also added some fresh grated parmesan, cracked black pepper to the pretzels and pulsed it in a food processor. From there on I followed the directions and the results were great. Thanks!!
