My husband and I loved this recipe! The only bad part was that we didn’t make enough. I am not a huge fish person but this recipe will be make again in our household. Thanks for sharing!

First of all, you need to know that I’m not a huge fish-lover. But I tried this tonight and my, my, my! It was so delicious–and easy too. I used swai instead of tilapia, but followed the directions for everything else. It was wonderful. I will definitely be making it again. It would be great for company too–easy but impressive. Thanks for posting!

I made this today. It was delicious, even my 18 month old who refuses fish ate it! That makes it a keeper for us! Thanks for sharing!
