This was super simple and just plain good. I'm not a fan of tilapia normally and wanted something to dress it up. This mustard/mayo coating did the trick. And my toddlers had seconds! I used breadcrumbs and dried parsley. I threw in some dried dill, too. The pan-frying seemed like too much trouble, so I baked mine in a 400-degree oven for 15 minutes on a foil-lined pan. They came out perfect with no pan to wash! We'll have this again.
Great recipe! I followed preparation of the fish as written, but I baked the tilapia instead of pan frying (400 degrees for 17 minutes). I also added 1 tsp. Italian seasoning, 1 tsp. garlic powder, and 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper to the breadcrumbs, since other reviews mentioned it was a bit bland. I also used 1 1/2 tsp. dried parsley flakes, instead of fresh parsley, because that's what I had on hand. My husband and I sprinkled a little lemon juice over the fish before eating it, and it was awesome. This is the first time I have used panko breadcrumbs and I really liked them - my favorite tilapia recipe so far. Thank you!

I am married, have 4 kids, and work with my husband. We own a music store in the Tampa area. My husband is also in a very good 60's rock band, and I (for the past year and a half) have been booking agent/band manager for them. I am having the time of my life! I love to cook, and I am always looking for easy, but GREAT weeknight dinner recipes. Zaar has changed the way I live! My ratings system is as follows 5 stars: knocked my socks off! I will make this again, and again! 4 stars: Very good! But maybe one of my family members didn't love it, I will probably make it again, but not on a regular basis. 3 stars: Good, but needs quite a few modifications to make it a favorite in my family. If I make it again, I will re-work the recipe more to my family's taste. 2 star and below: I just don't give these reviews. If I really did not like the recipe, I just don't review it. One thing I promise: I will NEVER alter a recipe, then submit a negative review based on my "changed recipe". This is a TOTAL pet-peeve, if I change a recipe and have a favorable outcome, I will list the changes in my positive review, but if I change it and do not like it, well that's my fault and I won't do anyone any favors by saying the recipe is no good when I'm the one who ruined it!
